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!

To be completely and utterly honest, i think it's slightly young. I wouldn't go any younger that 16. Being 13 myself, i think it's hard trying to decide and put a label on something like this. If you bisexual, great! Straight, great! What i'm saying is....We have PLENTY of time in life to decide, so don't rush it just to say "Hey, i'm bi!" Or "Hey, I'm straight!"

Use ur OWN quotes or a pic or something, not a dead character from Harry Potter k?  Oh i'm so sorry if the right to have my own views has offended you, i'm just  saying that the way i see it is that at the age of thirteen a kid is now being introduced to topics such as these and their hormones are now kicking in and they should give themselves time to grow, these are my views and i'm entitled to them, just the way you are to yours. Second of all its my signature , i'll put what i want and quote what i want from who i want, and if it bothers you that much then just be the big kid you are and ignore it, K?
