Our loyal and determined Hero sets out on an improbable quest to find an antidote, dealing with ridiculously large dragons, particularly nutty barbarians, and potentially fictional vegetables. As usual t ...more
- Cold: Stuff a small carrot up each nostril to stop a running nose. Remember to breathe through MOUTH.
- Upset Stomach: Drink a cupful of live earwigs. The insects will the germs in your small intestine and eat them. Probably.
- Chicken Pox: Point the spots with Old Wrinkly's soothing lotion of Runny Seagull Poo. This will relieve the itching. It will also cause your friends to stay away from you, thus protecting th ...more
Fishlegs starts acting very strange and the village soothsayer and doctor declares that he has been bitten by a Venomous Vorpent and thus has Vorpentitis and if Hiccup is unable to find THE cure by the next morning, Fishleg
(Granted, there's a reason behind his unusual behavior, but still.)
It was exciting watching him disobey his father, take on the scariest tribe of Vikings - whose boss has a personal vendetta against Hiccup - with almost no assistance, steal a vegetable-that-in-this-review-shall-remain-u ...more

Stars: Overall: 4 Narration: 5 Story: 4
It is really hard to NOT like this series – it works on two levels: kids will love the action and the humor, and David Tennant’s vocal manipulations fit the character’s personalities, slimy, menacing, goofy and even spoiled. Adults will appreciate the erstwhile hero Hiccup and his ability to out-think, out-reason and when all else fails, out-manoeuver the competition. Hiccup is smart and clever, and thinks fast on his feet and never loses s ...more
Tujuan: mencari obat untuk penyakit sahabatnya Fishlegs, yaitu Kobraitis akibat sengatan Naga Kobra Berbisa. Menurut kakek Hiccup yang peramal, obatnya adalah sebuah sayuran khayalan dengan nama: Sayuran-yang-tak-seorang-pun-berani-menyebutkan-namanya a.k.a kentang yang ...more
saat pulang kuliah, ketika hujan menerjang, badai menghantam, badan kuyup sampai ketulang, buku ini satu2nya yang aku pikirkan dan aku lindungi agar tidak basah (selain hape nomor dua).
Banyak, banyak banget pesan yang ada di buku ini. Gimana engga, tokoh utama yang super humble ini, emang udah seharusnya menang disetiap buku (ya, karena dia HEROnya), dan menang dengan kesederhanaanya. Hiccup bukan Snotlout, bukan juga dogsbreath, tapi dia bisa mengatasi quest-nya sebagai orang y ...more
Lol, from what I remember, I did enjoy this book. Hiccup is a great character both in the books and in the movies, and I actually really like Camicazi a whole bunch, so I'm glad she made a return. Old Wrinkly is pretty great too.
The story was fun. I like how easy these books are to read. Now I have to wait for the 5th one because I thought I had it but I don't and there is a wait list at the ...more
This book starts out in the setting of the open sea. The characters are Snotlout, Norbert the Nutjob, Chief of the Hysterical Tribe, Stoic the Vast, Dogsbreath the Duhbrain, and Hiccup and Fishlegs and Old Wrinkly. The conflict they face is that Fishlegs has gotten stung by a dragon named the Venomous Vorpent. There's a cure, it's a vegetable that no one dares named, a potato. The only place where you can get it is America. Hiccup finds out Norbert the Nutjob has one and that ...more
It is ordinary, grows in the ground, and tastes very delicious when my family pulls it out from the dirty washes it off, and bakes it in the oven.
It also happens to be the source of many inside jokes between my friends and me. Starting in about the seventh grade, randomly inserting, "You know, I really like potatoes," was a great humorous hit in lunchtime conversation.
Thus, when I realized one of the chapters was titled "Quest for the Frozen Potato," I was positive ...more
Hiccup harus menempuh kutukan naga untuk menemukan antidot-nya, yaitu sebuah sayuran yang tidak boleh disebutkan namanya. Sayuran apakah itu?
Nah, nama sayurannya tidak penting.. yang penting, Hiccup harus tahu cara menemukannya. Dia harus bisa melalui kutukan naga, mencuri dari kaum histeris yang s ...more
No matter what my age, though, the best part of this book is the Epilogue. Don't skip it.
What I think is especially great is that often with kids media, the kids are laughing at something goofy while the parents ar ...more
Hiccup is becoming more and more aware of himself and how well he performs under pressure; he just wishes, though, that he could hang out with his friend, Fishlegs, and not worry so much about being the Chosen One. Who can argue with that ...more
[3 stars for simple fun still being fun.]
Spoilers are coming.
Are you really sure you want to continue?
You had your chance.
So someone was stung by the Venomous Vorpent at the end of the last book. It turns out, that person was Fishlegs. Old Wrinkly diagnoses Fishlegs with Vorpentitis aft ...more
Would you go off to dangerous lands for a vegatable that didn't exist? With a nutbrained viking cheif and his deranged vikings on an island guarded by a dangerous dragon?
Some times those people are worth it.
Fourth book, some times great lengths are needed to save someone.
Really nothing is set in stone.
While I have watched the something i hold dear to me grow sick and old, only to eventually leave me and become nothing more then ashes in an inern. I ...more
Siapkah kalian menjadi pahlawan seperti Hiccup. Suku Viking pertama yang tidak mengandalkan ototnya tetapi otaknya, menggunakan kecerdasannya?!
Seharusnya saya nugas tapi entah kenapa malah menyambar buku ini di detik-detik terakhir dan memilih gak produktif, memilih males-malesan. Buku boleh pinjem doang nih. Uhuhuhuhu. Seru. Sejauh ini buku HTTYD yang paling gak ketebak endingnya. Ehe. Twistnya banyak. Misal soal Doomfang dan siapa yang kena Kobraitis, sial, aku me ...more
Buku keempat dari serial How to Train Your Dragon ini mengisahkan petualangan Hiccup menyelematkan nyawa temannya, Fishlegg, yang terkena penyakit Kobraitis.
Untuk hal seperti Gaya Bahasa dan Kosa Kata, Penokohan, dan Plot menurutku sama saja dengan buku-buku sebelumnya.
Yang selalu aku suka dari serial ini adalah, Cressida bisa menuturkan cerita seakan-akan semua itu memang pernah terjadi. Hal tersebut diperkuat dengan adanya coretan ilustrasi dan catatan di lemb ...more
I thought Cowell was pretty hilarious calling the ship 'The American Dream' and using the potato as magical cure, though in all honesty, the potato came from ...more
