I am fascinatingly funny, wonderfully whimsical, and I love to be read to. An audio book,a jug of wine, and thou. "J.K. on the "thou" part."

    The hilarious series which inspired the Dream Works film. Hiccup has three months, five days and six hours to get back to Berk, save his father, battle Polarserpents AND win the annual Inter-Tribal Friendly Swimming Race. Can he do it???? David Tennant reads this hilarious children's clasic which can be enjoyed by everybody.

    Story
    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).

    Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III was a Viking hero - dashing, brave, and ever so clever. But even Viking heroes have to begin somewhere.... Can Hiccup find the antidote to deadly Vorpentitis and fight the Doomfang? Can he brave the axe of Norbert the Nutjob and be the Hero yet again?

    You don't have to be a kid to enjoy this story. You just have to use your inner child imagination, come on, it's easy! The intonations of David Tennant's voice keeps you in the thick of it. I so love an adventure and that's what awaits you in this tale of "How to cheat a Dragon's curse".
