Hiccup is lost in the Library Labyrinth and the Driller-Dragons, Madguts and Murderous, are on the prowl. Hiccup's birthday is not going to be the quiet affair he hoped for.... This book also contains a comprehensive Dragonese Dictionary for those who'd like to dragon-whisper themselves.

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.
Everything David Tennant does is marvelous (I've listened to everything available on Audible). This recording is no exception. I have a hard time waiting for hm to record each book in the Cowell series as it gets published.
This audiobook has been missing the last 20 minutes for a long time. It is now complete, so any reviews that state it is incomplete are outdated. I love this series by Cressida Cowell. The books are hilarious, exciting and touching. It is also worth noting that the music in the entire series is really good, which is not something I expect from audiobooks. I recommend buying all of them! They just get better and better. Cowell's website gives the order of the books, starting with "How to Train Your Dragon."
I would recommend the book, but not the audible version. The book is missing the ending.
Will you please update this download to include the ending!
My son loves all the How to Train Your Dragon books, but with this one he was left hanging because chapter 19 was left out of the reading. This makes a very BIG difference especially due to the fact that he was following along with the actual book.
I cannot say enough good things about this series! I envy Cressida Cowell because she is having a great time doing what she loves. These books are over the top silly and highly entertaining. David Tennant is the perfect narrator for these books.
This series of books is brilliant! I even listened to it on my own on a flight the other day, my 7 year old son loves them and they are fantastic road trip books.
David Tenants storytelling in masterful.
Alvin and Toothless
We have bought 5 of the series and they are all fun and entertaining.
I like kid books on occasion. Don't get into this one thinking its anything like the movie though. So long as you keep the two separate from each other its enjoyable even for adults. Very cute and adorable as well as a lot of fun.
I love the sound of David Tennant's voice. He brings everything to life with humour and respect.
Toothless has a lot of personality, but I'd have to go with Kamikaze.
The fight with the Hairy Scary Librarian was well-written and nicely executed.
I'd love to have read it all in one sitting, but we use these as entertainment on longer drives, and this took two longer drives to get it done.
More Tennant. All fantastic.
This book is equal to the other books in the Dragon series. They are all awesome and really fun to listen to, The narration is wonderful with great voices so you really can believe the whole cast is there. This was the 4th book in the series I listened to and have the other 4 on my ipod now waiting for the chance to escape into my head.
I Highly recommend this series to anyone young at heart.
Author Cressida Cowell and narrator David Tennant are a brilliant combination. In this slightly shorter story (two and a quarter hours) he does his usual terrific job of bringing each distinct character to life while delivering the laughs, suspense and action that are the hallmarks of these books.
"The kids love Hiccup and Toothless..."
This is just right for the kids (and Adults) for entertainment on a car journey.
Even unabridged, at a couple of hours long, it lasts long enough to fill time, but not so long that interest starts to wane.
The kids love Hiccup and Toothless, and the adults appreciate the finesse of David Tennant's reading.
"A Hero's Guide to Deadly Dragons"
Another fantastic Hiccup story by Cressida Cowell we have not been disappointed yet by her books and brilliantly read by David Tennant, keeps the whole family entertained and quiet during car journeys - Thank you!!
"This book is amazing"
I love this book along with the other ones and my favourite character is fishlegs because he is a scared of every thing but he is still loyal.
