    Story
    (140)

    Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III was a Viking hero - dashing, brave, and ever so hairy. But even Viking heroes have to begin somewhere.... Toothless has been captured, the nanodragon is about to be gobbled, and Sharkworms are on the loose. Once again we are relying on Hiccup to be a hero.

    Avocat says: "David Tennant's narration makes this worth the $$!"
    "Great Listen"

    Where does How to Speak Dragonese rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The How to Train Your Dragon series of books are the only audiobooks we (Mom, Dad, Son (8 yrs old) and Daughter (5 yrs old) have ever listened to, and we are sold. It has been a huge hit with the entire family for long road trips.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The kids love the entire series. The highlight of this one for them was when Alvin the Trecherous fell out of the baloon.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made us laugh. We loved it!


    Any additional comments?

    We recommend for the entire family. A great book to bridge the age gap between our 8 and 5 year old. I also think older kids would like it.
