I was at the movies today and saw the movie preview for one of our books in the LRC. How to Train Your Dragon is written by Cressida Crowell. It is about the adventures of an 11 year old viking called Hiccup Horrendous 111. He is the son of a viking chief who must capture a dragon to pass his initiation test. If he fails this test he will be kicked out of his tribe. Hiccup’s adventures begin from the minute he tries to pluck a dragon from a “Dragon Nursery” where 3000 of them are hibernating …Click here to read a bit of the story and enjoy some of the funny sketches from the book.
This is the opening line of the story…. Long ago, on the wild and windy isle of Berk, a smallish Viking with a longish name stood up to his ankles in snow. Now come to the LRC to borrow the book and read some more before you see the movie!
The movie will be out on March 25th, but you can watch the trailer now.
