Hiccup The Viking Who Was Seasick
About this deal
Some may think that children's books are too small, simple, and menial to have an "Art," but that is just not true. In a few more years, DreamWorks Animation would create the colossal DreamWorks Dragons Franchise based off of and inspired by these Books. It was later published in the United States in 2014 under the title How to Be a Viking, by Little, Brown and Company.
It's a sweet read, has some excellent lessons, and makes for an interesting early insight into how Hiccup differs from the rest of the vikings, even as a little boy. This is a lovely book; it is warm and witty, with instant appeal and the deft touch we have come to expect from Cressida Cowell. 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. Hiccup, The Viking Who Was Sick is an hilarious, heartwarming tale about a little boy facing his fears and getting to grips with the things he hates the most. An enjoyable book pitched at a much younger audience than ‘How to Train Your Dragon’ but with the same feel.Unlike his dad, Stoick the Vast, Hiccup is tiny, thoughtful and polite and scared of almost everything - especially of going to sea for the very first time. 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.
The whole thing has enough breezy, tongue-in-cheek energy to make this not only one of the more invigorating accounts of dealing with fear but also a humorously offbeat swashbuckler. Our parents are not always as wise as our grandparents, even if old people’s breath can stink of fish. Great book for the little ones, though, especially if they've been introduced to the movies (which are in many ways VERY different than the books). This is a perfect picture book for all children aged between three and six who love Vikings and watching grown-ups come unstuck!
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. I'd looked for this in the past, so the library must have gotten in over the last year or something. 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. 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.
