About this deal

In the fifth installment of the How to Train Your Dragon books, a volcano that shadows the Island of Berk (Hiccup’s home) has become active and the tremors are hatching the eggs of the sword-clawed Exterminator dragons which pose a threat to Berk Island and the Hairy Hooligans. Hiccup gets into trouble and is saved by Hotshot the Hero. Hiccup hires Hotshot as his ‘bardiguard’ but it was later revealed that Hotshot wants to kill Hiccup and none of the clan members knew about it. Fishlegs gets stung by a Venomous Vorpent. He needs a take a certain ingredient or else death would be his faith. Hiccup goes on a quest to find the ingredient and save his friend’s life. He fights Norbert the Nutjob on the Island of Hysteria and stumbles upon a Doomfang. Will he be able to return to his friend before it’s too late? How to Twist A Dragon’s Tale (2007) Windwalker (in books 5, 8-12) is a Sky Dragon. He’s very loyal to Hiccup. His type of dragons goes through a chrysalis stage.

During another lesson, Hiccup and Fishlegs are again kidnapped and taken to Fort Sinister, a base of operations for the Roman Empire. Once there, Hiccup recognizes his old enemy Alvin the Treacherous. Fishlegs and Hiccup are imprisoned along with the young female Bog-Burglar heir, Camicazi. Toothless is eventually allowed to stay with Hiccup. After several failed attempts at escape, Hiccup calls for Ziggerastica and comes up with a plan of escape on Saturn's Day.

Hiccup is hated in the village and is known to be weak and indecisive. He wanted to try to kill a dragon to improve his reputation among the Vikings. He was able to catch a small dragon, whom he names Toothless, and he started training it in his own way. Hiccup and his dragon Toothless come out as the heroes of this Viking adventure.

How to Train Your Dragon Series by Cressida Cowell - Goodreads

Wodensfang (in books 9–12) is a Seadragonus Giganticus Maximus. He helps Hiccup in stopping the Rebellion. No, seriously. Toothless is not remotely adorable. He's crude and gross, and purposely poops all over Hiccup's house. Also, he hates Hiccup for most of it, and Hiccup hates him, mostly because the Vikings actually use dragons as slaves after they DRAGONNAP them from their caves when they're babies. That's one of the tests to become a full member of the tribe. As is training the dragon to do what you say by yelling at it. Oh, AND Toothless is way smaller than in the movie. Hiccup can carry him around. If anything, Toothless reminded me of Gollum. Yeah.Norbert the Nutjob (in books 4, 7, 12) is the Chief of the Hysterical Tribe and one of Hiccup’s enemies. You know those rare moments in life when you loved the movie far more than you even liked the book? Well, that's How to Train Your Dragon by Cressida Cowell. This doesn't happen very often for me, but ultimately I find some movies really take the source material and change it for the better. Often, unfortunately, that happens when the source material either isn't great, has problems, or just plain missed out on an opportunity for emotional attachment. In the case of Cowell's novel, it's not that her story is bad but rather that the film's story is better, infinitely so, especially when it comes to emotionality. A dark grey cell indicates that the character was not in the property or that the character's presence in the property has yet to be announced. Much as I didn't like the story, because it's just totally not for me, there is one reason I rated this three stars and did like listening to it: DreamWorks also published 6 early reader books based on the movies; these were not written by Cressida Cowell. They are:

Alvin the Treacherous (in books 2–3, 5, 8–12) is Hiccup's arch-enemy and rival to become King of the Wilderwest. He used to be Chief of the Outcast Tribe in book 2 and was again in books 9–12. He is the main antagonist in books 2–3, 5, and is joined by Excellinor the Witch (his mother) in books 8–12. Although he is a fantastic sword fighter, he is frequently losing parts of his body such as all of his hair, a hand, a foot, a nose, and an eye (as the results of his encounters with Hiccup), and becomes increasingly disfigured by warts (caught from his mother) across the final four books. He is also Fishlegs' father by Termagant, as revealed by the final book. He is claimed by the Dragon Guardians. I actually audio-booked this and I would thoroughly recommend the audio-book as a great way to read this (although I've also read some of these books aloud with my younger brother). It's narrated by David Tennant and he does an excellent job of bringing the world and characters to life. Not only that, but you also get sound effects and also some fun musical interludes to set the tone.How to be a Viking was recorded and released by Hachette Audio in 2014, narrated by Cressida Cowell.

The book is good fun but a touch too silly for there to be any real emotional connection with the characters - always a minus for me. It has some clever bits, some funny bits, and Celyn and me certainly didn't waste our time reading it. A solid 3* for fun. I would rate the film more highly, and that's a rarity for me. Toothless eats Hiccup’s How to Train Your Dragon book on his 12th birthday. Hiccup has no idea what to do until he learns that there’s a copy at the Meathead Public Library. Hiccup decides that he must steal the copy from the library. How to Ride a Dragon’s Storm (2008) In the final installment of the series, a war breaks out between the humans and the dragons and Hiccup seems to be the only one capable of saving the dragons from complete destruction. Can Hiccup prove that he’s a worthy king? Our verdict on the How to Train Your Dragon booksCowell, Cressida (7 February 2014).
