The creator of the hugely popular How to Train Your Dragon series, Cressida Cowell confesses here that the whole saga of young Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III was inspired by a few drawings she made in her sketchbook of a little Viking who was intimidated by his larger-than-life father—a relationship she knew well from the example of herself and her own father. Here Cowell gives readers 4 to 8 that original story, in which Hiccup takes his first sea voyage—right into the teeth of a ferocious gale. Her hilariously over-the-top cartoons only add to the boisterous charm of the tale, and the book includes an audio CD with both the author reading the story and David Tennant reading an excerpt of How to Train your Dragon.
