THE STORY BEGINS in the first 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. In fact, in the beginning, Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III was the most put upon Viking you`d ever seen. Not loud enough to make himself heard at dinner with his father, Stoick the Vast; not hard enough to beat his chief rival, Snotlout, at Bashyball, the number one school sport and CERTAINLY not stupid enough to go into a cave full of dragons to find a pet... It`s time for Hiccup to learn how to be a Hero. Read all of Hiccup`s exploits in the How to Train Your Dragon series: How to Train Your Dragon, How to Be a Pirate, How to Speak Dragonese, How to Cheat a Dragon`s Curse, How to Twist a Dragon`s Tale, A Hero`s Guide to Deadly Dragons, How to Ride a Dragon`s Storm, How to Break a Dragon`s Heart, How to Steal a Dragon`s Sword, How to Seize a Dragon`s Jewel and How to Betray a Dragon`s Hero.
