A laugh-out loud romp of a Viking adventure set on the windy Isle of Berk, this launched the hugely successful series. Having just passed his Dragon Initiation Programme, Hiccup Horrendous Haddock the Third, a young Viking searching for a way of becoming a hero, sets about the challenge. First thing up, he must catch a dragon; then he will have to train it. Hiccup’s attempts are hilarious and charming and the cold, wet, dark world of the Viking provides a seemingly endless source of excellent jokes.
