Although David Tennant was marvelous once again, and Cressida Cowell's story was as engaging as ever, it was dissappointing that this was *not* an unabridged version. The end seemed very sudden, which was explained when we discovered that the book goes on further. I don't know what else might have been missed.
Both my four and nine year olds love this recording, and - at least the first few times - the stories are also entertaining for the grown-ups in the family. The narrator is excellent and the songs are good too. Perfect for bedtime or for a rainy hour on the couch.
If you don't mind certain Christmas myths being blown for your kids, this is a perfectly good recording, and certainly kept both my four year old girl and nine year old boy's attention. However, it also gives the game away on the former subject which I am not ready to have happen, especially for my four-year-old. Very disappointing. I am just hoping they missed it and have deleted it from iTunes.
