This is hilarious, entertaining and intelligent. I loved every minute of it. I was hesitant, because kid books usually ruin dragons by making them like dogs. That does not happen in this book. The dragons come in all shapes and sizes and they are all vain and selfish. Hiccup the main character is not overly strong, smart or have heroic powers. He does not usually get out of jams by having good luck (well, most of the time). All the characters, human and dragon, are interesting. I love the names of the characters such as FISH LEGS AND DOG'S BREATH. Dragons have many colors, of which some are POOEY BROWN OR SNOT GREEN. This will be enjoyed by all ages.
YELL AT IT
There was one problem and that was with the volume. At times the sound is whispering and I could not always hear and at other times the volume was loud screaming. It was impossible to adjust the volume to a comfortable level. It was very annoying. I also question the narrators accent. It seemed Scottish or at least not what I expected Vikings to sound like.
HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON
I hope the volume control is not enough to keep you from trying the book, it would really be a shame to miss out on this excellent book. If it is too much for you, you could always return it.

The only reason I downloaded this book is because it is narrated by David Tennant. I couldn't help myself I just had to listen to Tennant read. I expected the book to resemble the movie - which I loved. But I was wrong. This story was very different than the movie and way fun. Tennant is an amazing narrator and he brought the story to life. And since the story was so different from the movie, it was all new to me. I highly recommend this audiobook if you have young kids or if you're a Tennant fan.
