About this item

British writer Cressida Cowell "translates" the humorous memoirs of Viking hero Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III, as he recalls how he was initiated into his career as a world famous "Dragon Whisperer." Growing up as the son of the chief of his tribe, the Hairy Hooligans, Hiccup is under a lot of pressure to prove himself by capturing a fire-breathing baby dragon and training it to obey his every command. But instead of a terrifying beast, Hiccup brings home a toothless, skinny dragon whelp who stubbornly responds to his master's orders with indolence and indignation. Luckily, Hiccup is blessed with the rare ability to speak "Dragonese," a talent which eventually helps him overcome the rude behavior of his fellow apprentices and inspire his scaly companion to perform some timely heroic feats.
Chronicles the adventures and misadventures of Hiccup Horrendous Haddock the Third as he tries to pass the important initiation test of his Viking clan, the Tribe of the Hairy Hooligans, by catching and training a dragon.
