Hiccup: the Viking who was seasick

Hiccup: the Viking who was seasick

Cowell, Cressida

So begins Cressida Cowell's hilarious picture book about a little Viking who cannot fit in. Unlike his dad, Stoick the Vast, Hiccup is tiny, thoughtful and polite and scared of almost everything - especially of going to sea for the very first time. But go he must... So who will save the day when everything goes disgustingly wrong aboard ship and all the big Vikings lose their cool? This wonderfully witty fable will delight all those who have ever faced up to their worse fears and is destined to become a children's classic. Expect great things from little Hiccup. This is a perfect picture book for all children aged between three and six who love Vikings and watching grown-ups come unstuck!

Reviews

This is a lovely book; it is warm and witty, with instant appeal and the deft touch we have come to expect from Cressida Cowell.
The Children's Bookseller (March 2000)||This is a lovely book; it is warm and witty with instant appeal and the deft touch we have come to expect from Cressida Cowell
The Children's Bookseller||The whole thing has enough breezy, tongue-in-cheek energy to make this not only one of the more invigorating accounts of dealing with fear but also a humorously offbeat swashbuckler.
