A beautiful book! My 5yr old daughter loves the animation and, as she loves reading, I thought that it would be nice to read the original story. It's lovely and I know that she will love it. The story is beautifully written and illustrations are fab. She will love it and I would highly recommend to any Dragon fan

I bought this for my nephew (aged 4) as an introduction to the Hiccup character that my son loved so much. Brilliant illustrations from Cressida Cowell as ever & a simple to follow story for little 'uns. Recommended for the little wannabee vikings in your life!

Just in case you get caught out. This IS a picture book, the characters ARE called Hiccup and Stock. But this isn't part of the series (though I told my son it was!). Written in 2000 (and said to have inspired thelater series) it is about a young Viking who doesn't fit in, but there's not a dragon in sight.

We've recently introduced our son to the films and at three he's not old enough for the book series so I was thrilled to discover this in the library. Familiar names and characters and a great little tale about bravery.

Hiccup doesn't want to go to sea, he's easily scared despite his dad Stock telling him Vikings aren't frightened. Yet when he does face his fear he may prove stronger than anyone thinks...

Perfect for my son's age, though some pages are more text-heavy than others. A quirky style of drawing. My boy didn't seem to mind that the book was completely unrelated to the film, was happy to see Hiccup as a small boy "like me!"
