  • "The kids love Hiccup and Toothless..."

    Overall

    This is just right for the kids (and Adults) for entertainment on a car journey.
    Even unabridged, at a couple of hours long, it lasts long enough to fill time, but not so long that interest starts to wane.
    The kids love Hiccup and Toothless, and the adults appreciate the finesse of David Tennant's reading.

    Hiccup is lost in the Library Labyrinth and the Driller-Dragons, Madguts and Murderous, are on the prowl. Hiccup's birthday is not going to be the quiet affair he hoped for.... This book also contains a comprehensive Dragonese Dictionary for those who'd like to dragon-whisper themselves.

  • "Child villains become heros of Hi-t..."

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    The story starts with an 'apparent kidnapping' and transport of the main characters to a Hi-Tech secret school where evey 'pupil' has shown some criminal skill or apptitude that qualifies them to be there, although a few are following family tradition, and once enrolled no-one leaves until they graduate...

    This story runs through making new friends (and enemies) a daring escape leading to an almost catastrophic event affecting the whole school, and in the back ground sets up a plot that will run through the series of sequel books.

    The main characters are like-able and Jack Davenport's reading/performance is brilliant.

  • "this is cool"

    Overall

    Comment of my 9 year-old-son. It's very very good.



    My kids love Jeremy Strong's storys of fun and may-hem, and there usually a few gags for Mum & Dad to chuckle at too.

    Martin Clunes does a great job of 'telling' (not just reading) the story.

Strange things were happening in the dead of night. Children would put a tooth under their pillow for the tooth fairy, but in the morning they would wake up to find... a dead slug; a live spider; hundreds of earwigs creeping and crawling beneath their pillow. Evil was at work. But who or what was behind it...? Listen to this book and find out!

Joe's got his own bowling alley, his own cinema, even his own butler who is also an orang-utan. He's the wealthiest 12-year-old in the land. But Joe isn't happy. Why not? Because he's got a billion pounds... and not a single friend.

    When the doors of the lift crank open, the only thing Thomas remembers is his first name. But he's not alone. He's surrounded by boys who welcome him to the Glade - a walled encampment at the centre of a bizarre and terrible stone maze. Like Thomas, the Gladers don't know why or how they came to be there - or what's happened to the world outside. All they know is that every morning when the walls slide back, they will risk everything - even the Grievers, half-machine, half-animal horror that patrol its corridors, to try and find out.

    Look, I didn't want to be a half-blood. I never asked to be the son of a Greek God. I was just a normal kid, going to school, playing basketball, skateboarding. The usual. Until I accidentally vaporized my maths teacher. That's when things started really going wrong. Now I spend my time fighting with swords, battling monsters with my friends, and generally trying to stay alive. This is the one where Zeus, God of the Sky, thinks I've stolen his lightning bolt - and making Zeus angry is a very bad idea.

    For anyone who loves sailing and adventure, Arthur Ransome's classic Swallows and Amazons series stands alone. Originally published over a half-century ago, the twelve books are still eagerly read by children and adults alike - by all those captivated by the world of adventure and imagination. Such longevity is not only due to Ransome's unparalleled gift of storytelling, but also his championing of qualities such as independence and initiative; virtues that appeal to every generation, whether young or old.

    "En af H.C. Andersens bedste venner sagde om ham, at han "har sået i det danske hjertelag som ingen anden." Det er sandt. Derfor bliver jeg aldrig færdig med eventyrene. De afgiver bestandigt nye betydninger, nye indsigter, nye afsløringer. Først legede eventyrene det danske sprog ind i mig under min morfars oplæsninger, da jeg var meget lille. Siden lærte jeg i skolen, hvad man burde mene om eventyrene og deres digter.
