He had sent a mighty summer storm to claw
up the seas around the bleak little Isle of Berk.
A black wind was shrieking across the wild and angry
ocean. Furious thunder boomed overhead. Lightning
speared into the water.
Only a madman would think it was the kind of
weather for a pleasant sail.
But, amazingly, there was one ship being
hurled violently from wave to wave, the hungry ocean
chewing at her sides, hoping to tip her over
and swallow the souls aboard and
grind their bones into sand.
Praise for How to Train Your Dragon:
"A narrative rich in dragon muck... genuinely fierce [and] intelligent."—Kirkus
"...This is a goofy and exciting tale of an underdog who proves that brains can be just as important as brawn. Kids will hoot at the ridiculous names and sympathize with Hiccup's exasperation with his truly obstinate but strangely lovable dragon. A delightful read."—School Library Journal
"This hilarious farce will appeal to heroic fiction fans."—Booklist
