Cover From Elsewhere (Spanish):
Chronicles the adventures and misadventures of Hiccup Horrendous Haddock the Third as he tries to pass the important initiation test of his Viking clan, the Tribe of the Hairy Hooligans, by catching and training a dragon…
Marked it down one star due it being so different from the movie …. I know shocker …. but I watched the movie first and love it so much, it’s one of my faverite movies so I hated that this book was so different. That aside however it made for a good read, it was witty and funny and Hiccup was similar to his film alter-ego however Toothless was so different and unlikable until the end when he managed to save hiccup’s life. I liked the whole viking test story to the book and it was more believable of a brutal viking tribe than the movie with Hiccup’s dad being a lot more harsh. I liked the way it was written like a diary but once again it was Toothless who dissapointed me as he was small, moody, wimpy and common not like the cool, funny, rare and lovable nightfury version of him.
