THE STORY CONTINUES in the second volume of Hiccup's
How to Train Your Dragon memoirs ...
Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III was an awesome sword-fighter, a dragon-whisperer and the greatest Viking Hero who ever lived. But it wasn't always like that. Hiccup's memoirs look back to when Hiccup was just an ordinary boy, and finding it very hard to be a Hero.
Can Hiccup find Grimbeard the Ghastly's treasure
before Alvin the Treacherous gets his sneaky hands on it? And if Hiccup opens a box that says
DO NOT OPEN, will he live to tell the tale?
How to Train Your Dragon is a DreamWorks film starring Gerrard Butler, America Ferrera and Jonah Hill, out on DVD in October 2010 adapted from the best selling
