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
This was just as good as the first time I read it! Maybe even a little more so because I knew how the story would end and knew exactly what to look for.

Cressida Cowell has quickly become one of my favorite authors. I’ve been a fan of the How to Train Your Dragon movies and shows for several years now, but only recently have I begun to read the books that inspired it all.

Hiccup selflessly faces the danger of all dangers to help his friend who is deathly ill. The task must be done to find the mythical... potato... that will save Fishleg's life.
I liked this story a lot because Hiccup tries so hard to be the hero of the situation, and he somehow pulls it off, whether accidentally or not is unknown... And his father's response at the end? Priceless. ...more

So good. Please read.
