How to Cheat a Dragon’s Curse (The Heroic Misadventures of Hiccup the Viking) as told to Cressida Cowell. Someone got stung by a Venemous Vorpent, but who? It looks like it’s Fishlegs, he’s feverish, he has crazy spells (like charging at a group of Histerics). And he keeps on sneezing a lot (which is never good). And guess what the cure for Vorpentitis is? The vegetable-that-must-not-be-named, the imaginary vegetable from the imaginary country (America). It is know as….. THE POTATO!!!!!! Of course, Hiccup must go and retrieve it from a Histeric known as NORBERT THE NUTJOB, who wields the AXE OF DOOM!!!!!! And to make this worse, Hiccup recently shot an arrow at Norbert the Nutjob’s butt, and hit. Ouch. And to cap that, spring is close, and the Doomfang is trapped under the Wrath of Thor. If Spring comes before they leave the island of the Histerics….. they’re trapped there. Of course, Camicazi went with Hiccup to the island of the Histerics, and One Eye the Driver dragon is pulling their sleigh (which is also the Hopeful Puffin, Fishleg’s and Hiccup’s boat).
Anyway, I won’t tell you whether or not they succeed (because we already know that they do), but there are weird things that happen, and I’d spoil the book for you if I told you some of the things that happen. But I’ll say one thing… Fishlegs might NOT be the person with vorpentitis. 🙂
