Would you consider the audio edition of A Dragon's Guide to the Care and Feeding of Humans to be better than the print version?
Yes, because Susan Denaker makes the dragon, Miss Drake come to life. I read the book first and then because I enjoyed it so much, wanted to listen to the audiobook. I am an adult and really enjoyed this audiobook. It is a delightful, heartwarming tale with adventure and mild suspense.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Miss Drake the dragon is delightful on so many levels. I like that her character is the narrator of the story.

I enjoyed listening to this book mostly because of the performance of the narrator, who made the book sound spectacular; she plays the many different characters in the book (different ages, different nationalities) convincingly and with a great charm.
I like children and early teen books as a way of escapism, but this one was a bit too slow, too unoriginal, and it reminded me of so many other stories we all know from books and movies. There was much talking and not much action or funny things for children.
The language used is on the posh side, well-learned kids will have no problem, others will need of their parents or a dictionary to read it (which is not a bad thing at all!).
This must be one of the best fiction audiobooks I've ever listened to - both the story and the performance are incredibly good and funny. I've laughed out loud so many times, especially because Susan Denaker, the narrator, does such a great job at using an old and posh lady's voice when speaking as the dragon, Miss Drake. Almost reminds me of Dame Maggie Smith's voice from Downton Abbey. The story is filled with magic and the characters are interesting and have strong personalities, well-described places (but not to the point of boring). Absolutely charming and delightful book!
