All Hiccup wants is to impress his father and the rest of his clan by slaying dragons. But Hiccup is far from the typical Viking teenager. No matter how hard he tries, he just can't seem to fit in with the rest of his people. Until one fateful battle, Hiccup captures and injures a rare species of dragon by fluke. He spends days studying the creature and finds out that dragons aren't the monsters that his people believe. Now, defying years of Viking tradition Hiccup must do everything he can to persuade his father and save his new friends.
