Read full description of the books:
People said this book was funny...I didn't find myself laughing..Maybe it's due to my age but I got the idea that adults also found the humour in this novel amusing..Even if I didn't find LOL moments I still enjoyed the storyline though!
My one complaint if you own the Kindle version...The text when Toothless speaks is kinda hard to read and you can't turn up the font size cause the pages are like in a PDF..And as you read you come to a letter from someone and it's basically unreadable on the Kindle. The font used is pretty terrible and I get they were going for a scrawly type writing which I'm sure is fine in print but for the Kindle it becomes a smudgy mess.
But besides this if you've any interest in dragons or the 'How to Train Your Dragon' world then this short but sweet novel is worth picking up. Again you're following the main character Hiccup and his hard to please dragon Toothless. But don't think the novel and the movie are really alike because they aren't.
Hiccup is starting to learn what it really means to be a pirate and how important his role is even if he doesn't completely agree with their ideals. He still struggles with many things and he's always getting an ear bashing from someone (or sometimes physical). This tale sends him deep into the ocean and just maybe he'll discover some treasure or not!
