How to Train your dragon is about Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III and toothless some of the bravest warriors in the Hooligan Village. But Hiccup was not always a great warrior. Compared to the average Viking Hiccup is very different by different I mean small. This story tells the ups and downs that Hiccup went throw to become a great warrior. The main part is when two Seadragonus Giganticus Maximus and threatened to eat every one! And because Hiccup speaks Dragonese, language of dragons (and the only person that could); he talked to one of the Seadragonus Giganticus Maximus. Seadragonus Giganticus Maximus said "I come in peace but I'm still going to eat you all." Then he made a plain to destroy the dragons. And it worked. I recommend this book to anyone and everyone. If you don't read this book you are crazy because it is a funny adventure.

This book is about a Viking boy named Hiccup III. Hiccup is not an ordinary boy, and he is the son of the chief. Everybody expects Hiccup to be the best but unfortunately he is called Hiccup the Useless and he is the worst. Then one day, he tries to become a real hero by passing the final test. But he gets everybody exiled from the tribe because his dragon almost killed all the dragons. So, it ended it to a big dragon fight. After that, he shouts at his dad about what kind of a dad he is! But then, the chief finds the biggest dragon ever. Everybody then finds out that Hiccup can speak to dragons, which is illegal. But, he ends up saving the day. I like this adventured packed book because it about a person he shows everybody his strength and not his weaknesses. I would rate this book 7 out of 10.

I'll start by saying that aside from the character names, there aren't too many similarities between the book and the animated film, but I liked them both almost equally. The humor is still just as juvenile, Toothless is just as adorable, and the Vikings are just hilarious. It's just that the plot is entirely different. Which is fine. I can enjoy both. A note on the audio: David Tennant lends nigh-lethal levels of charm to his reading of this tale. I had wondered why the movie had so many Scottish accents when they're supposed to be Norse, but I suspect it's a combination of Cowell's drawing inspiration from the Inner Hebrides and Tennant's memorable narration. My only real complaint is that the music and sound effects in between chapters are noticeably (and annoyingly) louder than the voice track.
Dragons, Vikings and A...
Dragons, Vikings and Adventure are all you need to make a great children's book and "How to Train Your Dragon" contains all these factors. Cressida Cowell, the Author of this great book, is not well known but she will be when this book hits the shelves. Now a bit about the book, Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III was to be the next chief of the Hairy Hooligans Tribe but there was one problem. To become a full member of the tribe you must pass an initiation test. Hiccup was not the average Viking kid, he was a bit of an outcast. Hiccup was skinny, short and scared, plus he had to live up to the reputation of his dad which happens to be the current Chief of the Tribe. So Hiccup didn't have much hope to become a full member of the tribe and if you don't pass the initiation test you would be exiled from the tribe. Hiccup only had one friend and bullies constantly picking on him were not great motivation boosters. Hiccup conquers his fears and he captures his own dragon but that is only the first part if the test. I don't want to give away too much, so I will leave the rest of the story for you to read about. The cover of this book will really grab you attention so it won't be hard to find in stores. The illustrations and the design of the front cover are really appealing and makes you think the book is really old. This book is excellent for kids because it does not drag on like other books which leave the reader bored. After reading this book I think it is right to say that it is GREAT!!! Since it is short you can read it quickly and after a while you will see it on your shelf then read it again and again and again. I think this book would be great for kids between the ages of 7 to 11. I easily give it 4 stars.
This was a great read ...
This was a great read together chapter book choice for me and my six-year-old. Our tiny obstacle of course was being terribly familiar with the movies and television series based on this book and its sequels. Once we overcame the urge to be confused about the differences we were able to fully enjoy the original story. It was marvelous! Packed with action sequences, bullies and friends, and of course the dragons. A trip to the library for more was requested as soon as we closed the back cover, making it a perfect book for my kid!
