The story of Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III rise to fame, through his dragon-training exploits, told in Hiccup's own words by David Tennant.
Hiccup was a truly extraordinary Viking Hero, Warrior chieftain, awesome sword-fighter and amateur naturalist. He was known throughout Vikingdom as 'the Dragon Whisperer' on account of his power over these terrifying beasts. But it wasn't always like that....

Brilliant car-trip entertainment

We didn't know this book (or indeed the series) and hadn't heard a David Tennant-narrated book before, but the whole family--daughter, 7, son, 9, and parents--gives this two thumbs up. We loved it. We chose it for a long car journey, which as it turned out, was made even longer by a holiday traffic jam, and we really got lucky. The story is funny and involving and the narration is terrific, with great variety in the characterisations and beautiful delivery of the humour. I'm about to buy another in the series to store away for our next car trip, and the kids have since acquired two of Cressida Cowell's books. Highly recommended.

My Teenagers Like This

Any additional comments?

I bought this audio for my 4th grader. He received the book set of the series at Christmas and still hadn't read any of the books. Some of his friends wanted to borrow his books but I told him that he had to read them first. We compromised with my purchasing the audio version.<br/><br/>It took a few times of turning the audio on in the car while we were driving before he would listen to the whole story. He enjoyed the narrator, David Tenant so much that he listened to the whole audio until he was finished at midnight on the day he finally committed to listening.<br/><br/>He begged me for the next book and then my 2 teenage daughters wanted to know what all of the fuss was about. My daughters were laughing out loud while listening to the narrator and enjoyed it so much that they want all of the books in the series on audio.<br/><br/>Before my daughters started listening to the audio they said that they couldn't possibly enjoy a story they weren't reading from a book they had in their hand. David Tenant proved them wrong.

A family favourite

I cannot recommend these books highly enough. They have made long car journeys with young children fly by as we were all immersed into the viking world of Hiccup and his friends. The narration by David Tennant is remarkable. His voices bring the characters to life with some gorgeous regional accents (the Bog Burglers especially). We bring the ipod in from the car to finish the stories off in the kitchen they are so good.

Brilliant!!

My family and I loved this audio book. David Tennant does a spectacular job of bringing the book to life with many different voices, Toothless is my favourite. A warning though to fans of the movie: The movie is not the same as the original story. Some of the characters are different or the same in name only and the story is not the same. However if you can let that go it is highly enjoyable and shares a lot of the same spirit and humour.
