About this deal

By using the Web site, you confirm that you have read, understood, and agreed to be bound by the Terms and Conditions. I liked the introduction by Cowell, about how this is what started her crazy journey with the How to Train Your Dragon series. 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.

My son absolutely loves the How To Train Your Dragon movies and he finally decided that he wanted us to read the books together. 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.Hiccup, The Viking who was Seasick (also titled Hiccup the Seasick Viking in 2000) is a large book designed for small children. 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. 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.

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. Despite my love for the movies, I've never actually read the HTTYD books before, but I definitely want to. So who will save the day when everything goes disgustingly wrong aboard ship and all the big Vikings lose their cool? 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.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. 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. Very sweet little book about a kid who is worried he won't be a very good Viking, he is due to go to sea for the first time and he is terrified. 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. 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.

Nada impresionante ni sobresaliente, pero era un libro que NECESITABA leer, como gran fanática que soy de las películas y los personajes de "Cómo entrenar a tu dragón". Our parents are not always as wise as our grandparents, even if old people’s breath can stink of fish. Also the author of picture books, Cressida has won the Nestle Children's Book Prize 2006 and has been shortlisted for many others. Cute prequel to the How to Train Your Dragon Series; a good book for children who are shy, reluctant, or apprehensive about trying new things, to encourage them to face their fears and gain strength and courage from experiences.

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). I'd looked for this in the past, so the library must have gotten in over the last year or something. 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. But his biggest fear is having to go to sea, and with the inevitable first voyage fast approaching, Hiccup is very worried indeed.

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. Many years later the author would develop the characters of Hiccup and Stoick further into her 12-Book series, geared toward middle-aged and young teen children. She has a BA in English Literature from Oxford University, a BA in Graphic Design from St Martin's and an MA in Narrative Illustration from Brighton. 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. 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.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.
