Chronicles the adventures and misadventures of Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III as he tries to pass the important initiation test of his Viking clan, the Tribe of the Hairy Hooligans, by catching and training a dragon. Now available in paperback!
This book is absolutely hilarious, the characters all have silly names and you can't help but endear yourself to the character called Hiccup who happens to be the Chief's son but also the bullied kid at Training class and now he's got an even bigger worry on his mind - his new pet dragon Toothless who happens to be quite little snob and doesn't care much for following orders. This only makes poor Hiccups situation worse amongst his fellow young Vikings. Yet something big and nasty comes across the island home of these Vikings, in fact two big and nasty things. Two exceedingly big Sea Dragons! And so an incredibly hilarious adventure begins where Hiccup finds his bravery and Toothless discovers the meaning of friendship and loyalty. This book has actually been turned into a smashing 3D movie which does differ from the book but is equally funny and good so look out for it on DVD near Christmas time.
