CONTEST: Win the ‘How to Train Your Dragon’ score and coffee table book

Posted by · 10:45 am · January 3rd, 2011

More to give away this week as we’ve got something for the animation fans.  Up for grabs: Tracey Miller-Zarneke and Cressida Cowell’s lovely coffee table book “The Art of ‘How to Train Your Dragon'” and a copy of John Powell’s beautiful beloved original score for the film.

I think I’ll steal shamelessly from Sasha Stone again and give this away by way of a Haiku contest.  So cut loose with your best “Dragon”-inspired Haiku poem (submit up to three, if you like).  Winner gets the goods.

Also, be sure you refresh your memory on what a Haiku poem actually IS before submitting to your entries.

    Getting close to those
    That fill you with tons of fear.
    Your life will be changed.

    Fear of the unknown
    Is what makes the world so sad
    And it could cost you

    Flying with Toothless
    Was quite an experience
    Unmatched by others

    Toy Story Three? No,
    Pixar has fooled you, yet again.
    THIS is the year’s best.

    Pixar’s stranglehold
    has never seemed so unfair
    Dragons (and dreams) take flight.

    Moral courage is
    I am not one of them, I
    am Hiccup, I am new.

    Human and dragon–
    Pray tell, who is the trainer
    And who is the trained?

    Moth… Shut your mouth!

    When it comes to
    Watching three dee films there’s
    Only one Dragon ©

    Dragon tested and
    Mother approved this film
    Is pure fiber

    He is just a wimp
    That’s not what the dragon sees
    A dragon master

    A blurry demon
    Flying, sets the night ablaze
    Truly a cute pet.

    Be careful, Hiccup
    Dragons take their art to heart.
    Don’t step on the lines!

    A nightmare walks in.
    The kid deals with it calmly.
    Dad goes ballistic.

    Off in the blue sky
    Passes a boy and dragon
    Legless and toothless

    I went there (as did the movie).

    Lovely arrangements.
    Violin solo makes for
    A Romantic Flight

    Not So Fireproof.
    Everything we know is wrong.
    Don’t have to fight them.

    Love Powell’s music,
    But wait a minute… bagpipes?
    Vikings were Scottish?

    Who would ever think
    The story of a dragon
    Would leave us speechless

    A series of reflections from the perspectives of three characters:

    Try the fish. It’s good.
    Thank you for fixing my tail.
    Always there for you.

    Sorry I maimed you.
    I’ll make you better, Toothless.
    Make me better, too.

    I didn’t get you.
    I didn’t get your dragon.
    But now I do, son.

    Shot by accident
    Toothless dragon he’s my friend
    We ride together

    Missing appendage
    You and me and Gobber too
    We do not give up

    They don’t understand
    Enemies can be our friends
    Gentle heart required

    *Hiccup* excuse me
    Could some one scare me? *Hiccup*
    Oh my god! DRAGON!

    Closer to heaven
    Higher and higher we go
    My dragon and I

    She leaves me breathless
    Scared, I show her my Toothless
    Never more loveless

    Hiccup and Toothless,
    Scrawny and large, but as one
    Soar above slayers.

    The Night Fury calms,
    Tamed by love and faith airborne,
    And with tail mended.

    Son of a Viking
    Flying a dragon up high
    Finds a hero’s joy.

    Why are the dragons
    Being dismissed from top 10
    When it is the best?

    So high in the sky

    The lair of dragons
    The war of generations
    A fear forgotten

    Humorous Hiccup
    And his companion Toothless
    Fly high in 3D

    Fearless Viking King
    Ashamed of his wimpy son
    Proud of a fake leg

    Viking and dragon
    Foes, then Hiccup flies away
    The sky is now calm

    Retractable teeth
    A banquet of fish–no eel
    The Night Fury soars

    A troublesome son
    He cannot kill the dragon
    Breast helmet disturbs

    The unlikely pair
    Against all adversity
    Together they fly

    Boy and his dragon
    A Journey of reflection
    Friendship and beyond

    A smoldering Grey
    A black and white confusion
    The truth lies between

    Friendship fed on fish
    Misunderstanding of fact
    Together take flight

    Fed by ignorance
    Predujice lost in the sky
    United in Love

    Toothless although Strong
    Marked by confusion by both
    War is won through Amity

    Deadly flying cats
    Dad says they don’t make good pets
    Can’t stop a kid’s love

    They’re coming by air
    All is quiet all is still
    Fire from nowhere

    How does he do it
    I have always been the best
    He’s so different.

    Ok I was late to this site, and I am probably too late to be in this contest but here is my haiku offering.

    Two become one,
    Soaring the spectacular!
    Ah! Alive, at last!

    Thanks LK

    OMG OMG OMG I WANNA IT SO BADLY!!!! OMG HAHA XD okay so I came up with this. btw THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THIS CHANCE!! XD and also when does this contest end?

    They do it to protect
    It can’t be helped
    But he came and understood their plea for help
    He tamed the beast
    Gave him a home
    Trained with him
    And the boss now fall
    They were all free
    With gratitude for thee
    For the two who came and set them all free
    Became one
    and soaring as high as the eye can see
