Being a Hero

by Alex

In the book How to Train Your Dragon, by Cressida Cowell, Hiccup is trying to get a dragon while the dragons are hibernating in a cave.

Even though you’re not good at many things, you can still be a hero. I notice Hiccup isn’t good at many things, but he is still the hero. Snotlout, on the other hand, is good at many things, but is not the hero. Hiccup is brave and is very smart. He thinks before doing things and is not afraid to do things. You have to be good at the right things, not be good at bullying people. Snotlout bullies people such as Hiccup. That is why Snotlout is not a hero. Hiccup is good at the right things. He doesn’t bully or behave like Snotlout. That is why Hiccup is the hero.

  1. Great job Alex! You clearly thought about your letter. I agree with you 100% that even if you are not good at things you could still be a hero. Keep it up! 🙂


  2. Alex, I like how you chose a really good theme about being a hero even though you are not good at things. I have times when I’m a hero yet I am clumsy.
