How to Train Your Dragon #1: How to Train Your Dragon

Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III was just a nerdy little Viking, not big or hairy or scary at all. In fact, however terrifying he tried to look, he often just ended up looking quite – well – cute! He wasn’t loud enough to make himself heard at his father’s dinner table. He wasn’t tough enough to beat his rival Snotlout at ball games. He certainly wasn’t stupid enough to go into a cave full of dragons to find a pet! So how did Hiccup meet his tiny sidekick Toothless the Dragon, and become a mighty hero after all?

“Bulging with good jokes, funny drawings and dramatic scenes, it is absolutely wonderful.” Independent on Sunday
