Publisher's Summary

Listen to the books that inspired the How to Train Your Dragon films, narrated by David Tennant.
THE STORY CONTINUES in the second volume of Hiccup's How to Train Your Dragon memoirs....
Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III was an awesome sword-fighter, a dragon-whisperer and the greatest Viking Hero who ever lived. But it wasn't always like that. Hiccup's memoirs look back to when Hiccup was just an ordinary boy, and finding it very hard to be a Hero.
Can Hiccup find Grimbeard the Ghastly's treasure before Alvin the Treacherous gets his sneaky hands on it? And if Hiccup opens a box that says DO NOT OPEN, will he live to tell the tale?
How to Train Your Dragon is now a major DreamWorks franchise starring Gerard Butler, Cate Blanchett and Jonah Hill and the TV series, Riders of Berk, can be seen on CBeebies and Cartoon Network.

Another Tennant triumph

David Tennant brings these enthralling stories to life brilliantly! Both my 10 year old and I were captured by this story. The stories are fantastic, but David Tennant makes them a joy to listen to.

I've never seen my nieces so enthralled

What made the experience of listening to How to Be a Pirate the most enjoyable?

David Tennant is an awesome narrator. The story is already fantastic, but he puts such gusto, feeling, and humour into his voice that listening to is a million times better than me reading it. I put it on and curled up at night with my 2 nieces and listened to this. I have never seen them so enthralled by anything before.

What did you like best about this story?

It is so funny, the main characters are so likable. An excellent

Have you listened to any of David Tennant’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

All of David tennant's performances are awesome. This is just as fantastic as any of them. I hope he continues to narrate more children's stories.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

My nieces held their breath and were wide eyed with anticipation about once every chapter.

Any additional comments?

I would really love to see audible release the Unabridged version. But for now, this abridged version is still fun and perfect for an Aunt's one week visit.
