How to Speak DragoneseBook - 2005
Read the HILARIOUS books that inspired the HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON films!
Hiccup Horrendous Haddock the Third is a smallish Viking with a longish name. Hiccup's father is chief of the Hairy Hooligan tribe which means Hiccup is the Hope and the Heir to the Hairy Hooligan throne - but most of the time Hiccup feels like a very ordinary boy, finding it hard to be a Hero.
When Hiccup's dragon Toothless is captured by Romans, only Hiccup and his friend Fishlegs can rescue him. But things get WORSE, when the Romans steal Hiccup's precious book HOW TO SPEAK DRAGONESE and Hiccup and Fishlegs are taken off to the Fortress of Sinister!
Now they must save Toothless AND themselves - but how can they possibly escape?

“However small we are, we should always fight for what we believe to be right. And I don’t mean fight with the power of our fists or the power of our swords…I mean the power of our brains and our thoughts and our dreams.
And as small and quiet and unimportant as our fighting may look, perhaps we might all work together…and break out of the prisons of our own making. Perhaps we might be able to keep this fierce and beautiful world of ours as free for all of us as it seemed to be on that blue afternoon of my childhood.”
(Dragonese to English translation is in parenthesis after Dragonese text). Dinner time / Dragon: Issa yuck-yuck (This is disgusting) / Dragon: Me na likeit di stinkfish. Issa yuck-yuck. Issa poo-poo. Issa doubly doubly yuck-yuck. (I don't like haddock. It's revolting. It's gross. It's really revolting.) / You: Okey dokey so questa yow eaty? (Alright then, so what WILL you eat?) / Dragon: Me eaty di miaowla... (I want to eat the cat) / You: (you can raise your voice now) NA EATY DI BUM-SUPPORT, NA EATY DI SLEEPY-SLAB PLUS DOUBLY DOUBLY NA EATY DI MIAOWLA! (Don't eat the chair, don't eat the bed and definitely don't eat the cat!)
