How to speak Dragonese

I read How to speak Dragonese by Cressida Crowell. It is the third book in the ‘How to Train your Dragon’ series. This is my favourite series I’m reading now.

Hiccup Horrendous Haddock the third is the son of Chief Stoick of the Hairy Hooligans. One day Hiccup can become the chief of their clan. Viking kids have to go to school to learn to fight first and think later. But Hiccup is not big or like a proper Viking boy. He is smart and likes to solve problems without violence. This means the Viking adults don’t understand him and kids make fun of him.

In How to Speak Dragonese, Hiccup and his classmates are learning to be pirates. For the first lesson, they try to board a ship. Hiccup and his friend Fishlegs get separated from the class and by mistake climb into a Roman ship. There the Romans are planning to capture all the dragons and take them away.

When the Roman counsel is busy eating small dragons called Nanodragons, Hiccup saves a nanodragon called Ziggerastica. When the two friends try to escape from the ship, the Romans capture Toothless, Hiccup’s dragon.

Hiccup and Fishlegs go home and tell the other Hooligans what the Romans are planning to do. But no one believes them.

The Romans captured Hiccup and Fishlegs and put them in a prison in Fort Sinister. Over there they meet Camicazi, a girl from another Viking tribe called Bog Burglar tribe. Camicazi is small but she is planning to fight the Romans.

Because Hiccup knows how to speak Dragonese, he talks to Ziggerastica in Dragonese and that is how they escape from the Romans.

By reading the How to Train Your Dragon books, I learned a lot about Vikings and how they used to fight. If you want to know the best part, you must listen to the audiobook by David Tennant. It is simply awesome. He changes his voice to become the characters. You must give it a try. You will love it too.
