Four years of preparation should be sufficient to mold a top-notch pirate. When the training vessel sinks to the bottom of the sea and a mysterious sea chest is found, Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III and his sidekick, Fish Legs, "learn by doing" aboard the Lucky 13. Gerard Doyle narrates each outrageous event on the quest for Grimbeard the Ghastly's treasure with nary a hesitation and every bit of subtle humor that such adventures demand. He whines, wheedles, and schemes with the sleaziest of pirates. His impersonation of Toothless the Dragon is as annoying as possible, and his British accent adds to the mystique. Who could have imagined that the rightful heir would triumph! A.R. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine [Published: FEB/ MAR 06]
