About this deal

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. Some may think that children's books are too small, simple, and menial to have an "Art," but that is just not true. It was later published in the United States in 2014 under the title How to Be a Viking, by Little, Brown and Company. My son absolutely loves the How To Train Your Dragon movies and he finally decided that he wanted us to read the books together.

Beautiful, washed illustrations capture the emotion and adventure of the high seas with a softness that will appeal to children and parents, while the bold text tells a remarkable tale that will capture imaginations and drive young readers wild with delight. How to Train Your Dragon has been one of my favorite stories sense before I could read, when my sister and I would listen to the silly voices narrated on our boom box. The art is very much the same as in Cressida's other works (obviously, since she is the illustrator as far as I'm aware), so it does feel like a part of the httyd series/universe. 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.

The other Viking children mock him all the time, and won't let him join in with their rough-and-tumble games because they know he is frightened of everything from spiders to thunder. 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 a lovely book; it is warm and witty, with instant appeal and the deft touch we have come to expect from Cressida Cowell. 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.

Great book that shows even the fiercest warrior can get seasick and just because you look tough doesn’t mean you have to act tough all the time. This is where how to train you dragon all started, there is a lovely introduction explaining how the idea all came about. 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. 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. Poor little Hiccup--he doesn't exactly fit in to everyone's idea of the big and fearsome Viking, with his tiny frame and delicate, polite attitude.At first I thought what are the odds that there is another Viking kid with the name of Hiccup who is afraid only to realise at the end of the book that this is the same Hiccup that the movie is based on. 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. Also the author of picture books, Cressida has won the Nestle Children's Book Prize 2006 and has been shortlisted for many others.

He never really seemed scared at all of the sea once he was out there, and because his fear was never really shown or explained, it felt hard to believe this fact about him or care that he overcame it to be a hero. There is a nice author's note at the beginning where Cowell talks about her relationship with her own larger-than-life, fearless father and how he inspired her writing. But his biggest fear is having to go to sea, and with the inevitable first voyage fast approaching, Hiccup is very worried indeed.Simpatična pričica koja je svojevrsni prequel knjizi Kako izdresirati zmaja, u kojoj upoznajemo Štucavca dok je još bio mali Viking kojeg je bilo strah ploviti morem. Hiccup, afraid of going to sea with his heroic viking father, Stoick the Vast, learns all of this from his seafaring adventure. The art is adorable and there is no way to describe how you feel when you first see the characters that make up so much of the How to Train Your Dragon series. The Vikings are lost in a terrible storm, and it's up to Hiccup to help them find their way home again.
