I love How to Train Your Dragon because it is very funny and cool. The main character is a boy named Hiccup. He has a dragon named Toothless who is very annoying and also very small. Hiccup is very smart and he is the heir to the Viking tribe, the Hairy Hooligans. Hiccup has a friend named Fishlegs who does not know how to swim and is afraid of the dark. Hiccup also has another friend named Camacazi who is super talented. One of her talents is being funny while she is battling. She distracts her opponents by talking a lot and making fun of them. After she battled another Viking named Norbert the Nutjob, she said to him “practice Norbert, that’s what you need.’’
I like the How to Train Your Dragon books because of the adventures that Hiccup goes on. His adventures are complex and weird. One of the adventures that Hiccup went on was going to recover the treasure of his grandfather, Grimbeard the Gastly. The treasure was protected by dragons named Skullions who could not see but had good scent. The treasure was booby-trapped with a scent that attracted the Skullions and Hiccup just escaped. All of this exciting and complex action is why I like How To Train Your Dragon SO Much!
