Read the books that inspired the How to Train Your Dragon
films! This book will be a hit with children and adults
THE STORY BEGINS in the first volume of Hiccup''s How to Train
Your Dragon memoirs...
Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III was an awesome sword-fighter, a
dragon-whisperer and the greatest Viking Hero who ever lived. But
it wasn''t always like that.
In fact, in the beginning, Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III was the
most put upon Viking you''d ever seen. Not loud enough to make
himself heard at dinner with his father, Stoick the Vast; not hard
enough to beat his chief rival, Snotlout, at Bashyball, the number
one school sport and CERTAINLY not stupid enough to go into a cave
full of dragons to find a pet... It''s time for Hiccup to learn how
to be a Hero.
How to Train Your Dragon is now a major DreamWorks
franchise. How to Train Your Dragon 2 hits cinemas in
Summer 2014 starring Gerard Butler, Cate Blanchett and Jonah Hill
and the TV series, Riders of Berk, can be seen on
CBeebies and Cartoon Network.
