Description

It's a sweet read, has some excellent lessons, and makes for an interesting early insight into how Hiccup differs from the rest of the vikings, even as a little boy. Upon seeing that Vikings can get sick and scared, Hiccup starts to feel better and navigates the ship back home, past many marvelous creatures of the sea. It tells the story of Hiccup's childhood and if you read it then you will probably understand the How To Train Your Dragon series a little but more. This is a perfect picture book for all children aged between three and six who love Vikings and watching grown-ups come unstuck! We both love love Cressida Cowell's adorable illustrations, and while I appreciate the story as Hiccup's first step to a greater destiny of being able to overcome fear to do what must be done, my son just likes a little boy like him who is brave, and the hero of the story.

Our parents are not always as wise as our grandparents, even if old people’s breath can stink of fish. The Vikings are lost in a terrible storm, and it's up to Hiccup to help them find their way home again.Hiccup, afraid of going to sea with his heroic viking father, Stoick the Vast, learns all of this from his seafaring adventure.

Kids do see adults as wise people who are scared of nothing, and it's good for kids to look up to their parents, but it's also good to show them our weakness sometimes. Stoick and Hiccup greet Old Wrinkly on the shore and all realize that yes, Vikings sometimes get scared, but they deal with it, which is what Bravery is. He advises Hiccup to find out if Vikings really don't get scared and to try and see that the sea is a dangerous place, but can be wonderful.Until, that is, Hiccup, despite his increasing seasickness, is forced to save the day when all the other Vikings turn out not to be quite as tough as they thought. This wonderfully witty fable will delight all those who have ever faced up to their worse fears and is destined to become a children's classic. This is Cressida Cowell's first story of any kind relating to the How to Train Your Dragon Book series, and is about the relationship between father and son. I never even knew it started with a picture book, so imagine my surprise when I saw this title from Cassandra Cowell in the picture book section.

Featuring the beloved main character from the celebrated How to Train Your Dragon series, here's an exciting adventure that shows what it really means to be brave. Great book for the little ones, though, especially if they've been introduced to the movies (which are in many ways VERY different than the books). An enjoyable book pitched at a much younger audience than ‘How to Train Your Dragon’ but with the same feel. In fact, he was a little timid and worried a lot--and what worried him the most was going to sea for the very first time. Unlike his dad, Stoick the Vast, Hiccup is tiny, thoughtful and polite and scared of almost everything - especially of going to sea for the very first time.

Despite my love for the movies, I've never actually read the HTTYD books before, but I definitely want to.

Cressida loves illustrating her own work, but also loves writing books for other people to illustrate as the end result can be so unexpected and inspiring.I suppose the trip is supposed to show how Hiccup overcomes his fear; that although scared, he steers the ship back to safety when others aren't able to.
