A HERO'S GUIDE TO DEADLY DRAGONS How to Train Your Dragon, Book 6

by | Read by David Tennant

Children Ages 6+ • 2.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2007

David Tennant uses his Scots brogue to full enthusiastic effect as Hiccup Horrendous Haddock the Third and his Viking and dragon friends brave Driller Dragons, Red Hot Itchyworms, and the Hairy Scary Librarian to steal a book from the forbidden library. Crowell's book is silly, clever fun, and Tennant makes the most of every over-the-top character (Big-Boobied Bertha is a favorite), improbable situation, and funny anachronism. There's even a subversive message about the importance of books and a lesson in translating Dragonese, which Tennant delivers with giggle-inducing gusto. Listeners will be charmed and entertained and will want to seek out the whole series (especially before the second HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON movie arrives on the big screen in 2014).
