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!

Only parents push their children into those things. If your best friend comes out to you, I'll expect you to spray pepper spray in their eyes or something or baptize them. You'll probably be a priest when you grow up. This goes to @Awesomeangel

Perhaps you don't mean what I think you mean, and you are certainly not being as uncomfortably mean or misunderstanding as some people but why only FTM? Do you also support MTF? Please elaborate.    I just have never been comfortable or understand why anyone is MTF. Being a girl sucks and if I had the choice, I certainly wouldn't have been one.  I support gay, lesbian and all of that though.Some people just feel like it. Being a girl is an honor. And some people feel like a female inside. Why judge?

Thank you for clearing that up. Look at it this way. While you may not understand why anyone would want to be a girl, imagine there's someone with similar feelings to you not understanding why anyone would want to be a boy. :) anyway no offense meant to anyone.
