About How to Train your Dragon by Cressida Cowell:

Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III is the most useless viking you’ve ever seen. Not loud enough to make himself heard at dinner with his father, not hard enough to beat his chief rival at Bashyball, and CERTAINLY not stupid enough to go into a cave full of dragons to find a pet…it’s time for Hiccup to learn how to be a Hero.
