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!

    Im sorry your going through this horribles time with your parents. Im sorry for saying this but your dad is insensitive and hes not showing you love even if he does love you. I dunno what to say cos I would feel the way you does too :/ When it comes to your mum it must of been upsetting to hear her tell her friends that your the lazy and then saying to you that shes gonna leave you and your brother cos you doesnt appreciate what she does for you.  Im thinking she could do with some more help from you with the chores if you doesnt help already.  Is there any way you could say you want to have the chat with her and then tell her how your feeling and say you dont want to be called the lazy brat and what is it that your not doing that she wants you to. I really hopes it works out and good luck :angel :love

Most murders are done by gangs or robberies or things of that nature. A murderer should be put through a refining jail system that provides resources needed to have them become a more productive member of society. And, even if it is rooted in mental illness to an extreme, why should they be killed themselves for doing something that was not their fault? If they can be rehabilitated or treated for their mental illness, then they should have those resources provided to them. There is no justification for the death of another human being....for the death of another human being.
