How To Train Your Dragon Rating: 5


Author: Cressida Cowell

Before Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III was an awesome Viking warrior, before he was known throughout the Viking kingdom as The Dragon Whisperer, he was a bit, well ... chicken. In fact, according to Snotlout, Gobber The Belch and the other Vikings, Hiccup was downright useless. How To Train Your Dragon by British author Cressida Cowell is a hilarious adventure about a brainy teen who learns how to become a hero - the hard way.


Dragon Tale

To become members of the Hairy Hooligan tribe, Hiccup and the other Viking warriors-in-training have to pass a grueling three-part initiation test. Their first mission: to capture a dragon from a deep, dark cave where thousands of the vicious young creatures are hibernating. But a badly timed sneeze wakes the sleeping monsters and the boys barely escape being roasted by dragon flames! At the last minute, Hiccup manages to snag a dragon - the tiniest, scrawniest, most common type that has no teeth and a bad attitude. Luckily Hiccup has one special ability that no other Viking has - he can talk to the beasts. In fact, speaking Dragonese comes in handy when the entire population of Vikings is threatened to be devoured by a Seadragonus Giganticus Maximus, the most ferocious creature on Earth. Only one Viking is brave (or stupid) enough to face this ginormous monster – Hiccup The Useless and his dragon, Toothless!


With its short, easy-to-read chapters, funny illustrations and humor, How To Train Your Dragon is a fun fantasy-adventure book about a Viking underdog who becomes a hero. In fact, the book is so good that a 3-D animated action comedy by Dreamworks Studio (producers of other films like Shrek and Kung Fu Panda) is scheduled to come to theatres in March 2010! We suggest you double your pleasure and read the book before going to see the movie!

    You know what, I have asked a lot, like A LOT of people - every person I have ever interviewed these three questions and you are the first person that answered the question about going back in time - so levelheadedly! (is that even a word??!) What a grounded answer.  love the answers above you too as I think it's a cool way to describe giving advice as we can all use the wisdom of others as perpetual learners but still - very cool answer. I think if you feel drawn towards a helping profession and that is the very best thing for you. Dream big now and you will always have universal help to get to your goal!

You can definitely trust me. :)  And hey, Deanna, you never answered these three questions yourself. ;D  Yay! Love your answers!! Great job and you are right, so I shall later on tonight :D
