  • "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.

    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.
