In a time when dragons are disappearing, Hiccup recounts his earlier years when he had to capture his dragon and learn how to train in. I listened to this on audiobook and had an absolute blast with it. The best part for me though was the level of sass that Toothless possessed throughout the entire book. Very entertaining, comical and good natured.

Listened to the audiobook because the sixth-graders are reading it in ELA. It was a lot of fun—though nothing like the movie. David Tennant‘s narration was completely delightful (though I could have done without Toothless‘ stammer, which was unfortunate). Overall, it was a great production and story. #LibrariansofLitsy
Picked this up after perusing his website Norse Mythology for Smart People. It‘s super interesting so far. I‘ve been wanting to learn more about the Norse myths lately and this book has been great. I‘ve also started to watch the show Vikings (I know I‘m so late) and I‘m able to now recognize a lot of the references they make. Really fascinating stuff!
Merewyn's life and her personality had me involved with her story. She had a life with Kings, Queens, Vikings, nuns and monks. She is born in Cornwall, ends up in Iceland, Greenland and as one of the ladies who care for the Queen of England.
