Another excellent tale from the How to Train Your Dragon. My 9 year old son loves it.
My only issue on the Kindle edition, the text size is fixed. you cannot increase the text size and when reading on a Kindle Paperwhite the text is a real struggle to read as it is too small. There is a reason. The book is heavily illustrated, and reflowing the text would ruin the placement of the pictures. Reading it on the iPad Kindle app is perfect however.
This was the fifth Hiccup audiobook we have bought - to play in the car to our 7 year old grandson on our fortnightly 3 hour journey with him, and it has maintained the excellent standard of the previous ones. Naturally it is brought to life by the wonderful narration of David Tennant and his voice adaption to the various characters. The storyline is equally hilarious and the whole tale is spellbinding for our grandson, his father and us! Thank you author, thank you narrator and thank you Amazon for an amazingly speedy delivery!
Love love love this series of books. Cressida Cowell's stories are amazing and my goodness I don't think they could have found anyone better to narrate them than David Tennant! The voices he uses to depict the different characters are all amazing...the only problem I have is that my children expect me to do the same voices...I've gotten pretty good at Gobber! If you are new to the series I would recommend you start with How to Train Your Dragon otherwise the back story with Alvin (the poor-but-honest-farmer) will be lost on you...I should also like to make you aware that you can get these from your local library at no cost although the 10 pounds you pay here is well worth it.
My 8 year old daughter loves these books, she is flying through the series of books! Fantastic, funny characters, including a fantastic strong female warrior... always nice to challenge gender stereotyping.
Not only is this series of books one of the most loved in our household - by my three boys as well as my husband and I; it has one of the best readers too so we can listen to it in the car as well as bed time stories. On long trips in the car it has all of us entralled and the boys are quiet for hours. You will not regret buying these Cd's - David Tennent is superb. If you have not read any of the other books in the series I would recommend that you start from the beginning with 'How to Train Your Dragon'. Although they are stand alone stories you get a better feel for the characters if you know the history.
Bought for my Grandchildren age 6 and 9, to be read by and read to. They love this series of books and it keeps them chuckling. The drawings are great (Please note, the illustrations are not like the film). Excellent books with just the right amount of 'naughtiness' .
just finished reading this to my 9 and 7 year old girls. We can't wait to start the next in the series. A real page turner, thought provoking, exciting and fun. I think I enjoy as much as the children.
