    "sublimely ridiculous"

    As with all David Tennant's recordings of Cressida Cowell's Hiccup series, this one is irresistibly charming. Tennant has developed a unique voice for each character that suits the story perfectly and heaps even more humour onto the already hilarious text. His reading is even more adorable than when read in one own's head from the pages themselves. I highly recommend listening to the entire series narrated by David Tennant!

    Story
    "Adorable"

    I like kid books on occasion. Don't get into this one thinking its anything like the movie though. So long as you keep the two separate from each other its enjoyable even for adults. Very cute and adorable as well as a lot of fun.

    Story
    "Pirates and Dragon's Oh My!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of How to Ride a Dragon's Storm to be better than the print version?

    Because my eyes are failing; I enjoy someone else reading to me, and if I had my druthers (which I do), I'd druther have David read to me.
    He's the most entertaining, you know.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Norbert the Nut-Job, now, King of the Hysterics.

    He's sssooo serious and sulky. . . Lighten-up Norbert!

    I just have a weakness for wacky inventors who are a bit eccentric, and can wheal an ax. . . That's just me.


    What does David Tennant bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    His singing is: "Fabulous Darh-Link!"
    His voice when he sings the Viking song about a land that they are going to, AGAIN. . .And the the other song which would never,ever scare anyone " The Death Walk" it's a quaint lil' ditty.


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

    Well, there was the issue of taking the "Slave" mark imposed upon our hero, Hiccup to prove that he would keep his promise. (As I have privy to a lot of Hiccup's doing's) This is the first time he has had to make a promise.
    And I was skeptical as to HOW he could keep it.
    Because when you make a promise, you must keep your promise. . .
    Or no-one will ever trust you again!


    Any additional comments?

    Since I got it last month I have only listened to it. . .oh, five or six times.
    (I'm trying to learn the words to both songs-don't cha know).

    "Entertaining story, brilliantly narrated."

    This story is very entertaining, and the narration by David Tennant is fantastic! My kids, aged 7 and 10 have listened to this a number of times over the last year, and now quote all the lines they think are funny. We all highly recommend it.

    Story
    "Clever tale read with enthusiasm"

    If you've made it through the previous six stories in this sereis then you know what to expect - fanciful adventures involving nearly impossible situations and memorable characters. This story is no exception and is on par with some of the better tales in the series.

    What sets apart our experience with this series is the inspired performance from narrator David Tennant. He doesn't just narrate the story, he gives a rollicking performance full of energy and hilarious characterizations. My kids listen to these repeatedly and like to imitate the vocalizations and accents for their favorite characters. These stories have become a fun family experience.
