Hiccup is a member of a Viking tribe and wants to make his father, the chief, proud of him. Entering dragon training, Hiccup has a chance to prove his worthiness to his tribe and father. But then, in a world where Dragons and Vikings do not coexist peacefully, Hiccup encounters and ultimately befriends an injured dragon, at which point his world is turned upside down.

Rated 5 out of 5★ by Love "The Art Of Dragons 2" Book, But... Every page from cover to cover, start to finish tells more depth about the "How To Train Your Dragon 2" film. It is beautiful out together with a sketches, paintings and rough drafts of all the characters, both Vikings and Dragons.But these books did arrive damaged with the box partially opened. I have returned them because of this reason.I hope that your purchase of these wonderful collectors books go better than mine. 06/24/2014
