Simpatična pričica koja je svojevrsni prequel knjizi Kako izdresirati zmaja, u kojoj upoznajemo Štucavca dok je još bio mali Viking kojeg je bilo strah ploviti morem.

So who will save the day when everything goes disgustingly wrong aboard ship and all the big Vikings lose their cool? This was actually the first book that started the phenomenal series of 12 books titled HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON. 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. 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.She was convinced that there were dragons living on this island, and has been fascinated by dragons ever since. My son is still too young for Hiccup's later adventures, but this is one of his favorite bedtime stories. We both love love Cressida Cowell's adorable illustrations, and while I appreciate the story as Hiccup's first step to a greater destiny of being able to overcome fear to do what must be done, my son just likes a little boy like him who is brave, and the hero of the story. 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.

Cressida Cowell grew up in London and on a small, uninhabited island off the west coast of Scotland. In fact, he was a little timid and worried a lot--and what worried him the most was going to sea for the very first time. 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. Kids do see adults as wise people who are scared of nothing, and it's good for kids to look up to their parents, but it's also good to show them our weakness sometimes.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. Despite my love for the movies, I've never actually read the HTTYD books before, but I definitely want to.

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". 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. 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. Hiccup, afraid of going to sea with his heroic viking father, Stoick the Vast, learns all of this from his seafaring adventure. 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.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. Also the author of picture books, Cressida has won the Nestle Children's Book Prize 2006 and has been shortlisted for many others. The Vikings are lost in a terrible storm, and it's up to Hiccup to help them find their way home again. 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. Our parents are not always as wise as our grandparents, even if old people’s breath can stink of fish.

There is a nice author's note at the beginning where Cowell talks about her relationship with her own larger-than-life, fearless father and how he inspired her writing. However, I wish that the book showed more of an internal struggle or hero-moment when Hiccup makes the decision to take charge.

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. 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.
