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!

Take no action based on what you've read here without first consulting a mental health professional. Now, I have a lot of experience in mental illness. I have ADHD(Pre-DSMV), an anxiety disorder, and I've tested significant for bipolar (Pre-DSMV). My best advise is to find a therapist that you personally connect with. It's not about being comfortable, because a good therapist will challenge your thoughts, but you need to be able to accept those challenges. And to do that, you'll need a therapist that you mesh with. Aside from that, good medication can go a long way to helping you live with your mental issues. However, this isn't true for everyone, and it should be handled by a medical professional.  I'm sorry I found your comment rude. This post is not just about mental illnesses, and mental health is a universal thing that requires you to take care of yourself because you can't always see professionals because their isn't always easy access to them. Which is all clearly stated in the post. If you say something again on this post that's rude it will be reported I'm not sure what you mean by "rude". I mean, you found what I said to be rude, but you gave no reason why. If I don't know how to accommodate for your standards of rudeness, I feel like I'm doomed to repeat my trespass.  So, how exactly was I being rude? Your very first sentence. Yes its suppose  to be saracastic, but not everything has to be answered with as a joke, because some people take offense to it.
