About this deal

I'm so glad I found this little story on YouTube before starting my journey with this series (which I just received in the mail today). Cute prequel to the How to Train Your Dragon Series; a good book for children who are shy, reluctant, or apprehensive about trying new things, to encourage them to face their fears and gain strength and courage from experiences. 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. At first I thought what are the odds that there is another Viking kid with the name of Hiccup who is afraid only to realise at the end of the book that this is the same Hiccup that the movie is based on. 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.

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. 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.We both love love Cressida Cowell's adorable illustrations, and while I appreciate the story as Hiccup's first step to a greater destiny of being able to overcome fear to do what must be done, my son just likes a little boy like him who is brave, and the hero of the story. 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). An excellent sequel to How to Train Your Dragon, this highly amusing adventure story with a dash of toilet humour is perfect reading for boys and girls alike aged 8-12.

Stoick and Hiccup greet Old Wrinkly on the shore and all realize that yes, Vikings sometimes get scared, but they deal with it, which is what Bravery is. Kids do see adults as wise people who are scared of nothing, and it's good for kids to look up to their parents, but it's also good to show them our weakness sometimes.

Cressida Cowell grew up in London and on a small, uninhabited island off the west coast of Scotland. 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. Hiccup, The Viking who was Seasick (also titled Hiccup the Seasick Viking in 2000) is a large book designed for small children. By using the Web site, you confirm that you have read, understood, and agreed to be bound by the Terms and Conditions. My son is still too young for Hiccup's later adventures, but this is one of his favorite bedtime stories.

Hiccup, afraid of going to sea with his heroic viking father, Stoick the Vast, learns all of this from his seafaring adventure.Upon seeing that Vikings can get sick and scared, Hiccup starts to feel better and navigates the ship back home, past many marvelous creatures of the sea. Until, that is, Hiccup, despite his increasing seasickness, is forced to save the day when all the other Vikings turn out not to be quite as tough as they thought. 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. 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. It tells the story of Hiccup's childhood and if you read it then you will probably understand the How To Train Your Dragon series a little but more.

Poor little Hiccup--he doesn't exactly fit in to everyone's idea of the big and fearsome Viking, with his tiny frame and delicate, polite attitude. He never really seemed scared at all of the sea once he was out there, and because his fear was never really shown or explained, it felt hard to believe this fact about him or care that he overcame it to be a hero.

He advises Hiccup to find out if Vikings really don't get scared and to try and see that the sea is a dangerous place, but can be wonderful.
