So begins Cressida Cowell's hilarious picture book about a little Viking who cannot fit in. 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. But go he must...So who will save the day when everything goes disgustingly wrong aboard ship and all the big Vikings lose their cool?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. Expect great things from little Hiccup. This is a perfect picture book for all children aged between three and six who love Vikings and watching grown-ups come unstuck!
