Now that I think of it, Astrid (HTTYD) and Deryn are kind of similar. Both are pretty tough and have blond hair.

Haven't seen the movie, but I'll take your word for it. Funny that they never had Astrid in the books...

They are REALLY different from the movies. I mean SERIOUSLY. There's almost no plot correlation, and Hiccup is like, 12 and nerdy looking. Not the full-on teen boy hunk from the movies.

I've heard that. I looked up how old he was supposed to be. The answer said 12, and I was like, "Uhhh, don't think that's quite right."
I've also read that in the books Toothless is small and doesn't give a crap about Hiccup.

Yeah. Hiccup can't ride him like he does in the movie. And he's a lot less likeable, I'll agree.

I guess I can read them over the summer. Is the author still writing more?

Pretty sure. The first couple books are dead short, but the later ones are full-sized and get really, REALLY dark.

Oh gosh... I thought they were for really little kids. Now, I'm kinda scared.

No, no, its the GOOD kind of dark. Like, they become actual stories. The first couple ones are more cut-and-paste runs. It's kinda like how A Series of Unfortunate Events went along.

Gonna have to go find them! Even if it means... Asking the librarian. I always feel like they're silently judging you.
