How To Train Your Dragon by Cressida Cowell

Title: How to Train Your Dragon by Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III 

Author: Cressida Cowell 

Publisher: Hodder Chidren's Books (UK) 

Rate: 4 stars 

I must admit even though I'm an adult, I still enjoy reading children books. Hiccup series is one of my favorite children books; I like it so much, if I have kids I’ll shove it to their throats. Hiccup was an unusual Hero in every way. Born as Viking, he was skinny, short, plain, and  he prefers to use his head to think, and not to bump it to his enemies as most of Vikings in his era would do.

Hiccup was the son of his tribe’s Chieftain which instantly (because they’re Viking not some democratic Roman) made him an heir. But because he was so different with Vikings in general, most of the people doubt he will be a good leader, especially when he has a cousin who fit the leader stereotype in his tribe; big, mean, and rarely use his brain. In most of children book, his non-special condition will be balanced with having something so great; like awesome dragon for example. Unfortunately for Hiccup, he had the tiniest dragon every Vikings ever had; not helping his situation at all. But with his wit and the help from his loyal friend, he managed to overcome most problems and learned how to be a Hero in a hard way.

I've been debating about whether or not to buy these for my niece, but reading your description of Hiccup has sold me on the books.
I'm looking forward to reading these to her, and helping her learn to read them herself.
My niece now has nearly as many books as I do, she's going to be a reader whether she likes it or not.

Wow, I didn't know the movie was based on a children book. The cover is so adorable! I'd probably liked this book if I read it when I was little. The movie was awesome.
