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."
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".
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.
"The Dragons, of course"- my seven year old son who listened to it.
Other than he's also The Doctor and is awesome? Tennant has a very expressive voice and nice accent to listen to. If you have watched Doctor Who during the tenth doctor's era you can almost visualize his facial expressions.
My seven year old son (high functioning autism and adhd) loved listening to this while he played minecraft on his kindle.
This a great series. I purchased the first three books in the series unabridged and with a different narrator. For this book unabridged and with the original narrator wasn't an option. At first I thought my dislike of the narrator was me just not liking change, but as the story progressed my opinion of the narrator didn't. He uses voices that make the characters sound mentally retarded. I still enjoyed the story, but was distracted by the narration.
The story is interesting and the narration fantastic. Great car journey book. We listen to this series in the car on the way to school and we all really enjoy it.
my 5 year old has loved all of the Cressida books in this series
Awesome, Daring and Funny
Harry Potter, Beast Quest, Deltora Quest, Percy Jackson Series. They are all books about kids who go on adventures without their parents.
David Tennant is always great.
Great for 8 year old boy, 5 year old girls and their parents
Haven't read the print version but absolutely love the audio book.
The story is fun and moves along well.
No favoirtes, they are all good.
Love the way David Tennant narrates these stories. Would highly reccommend them.
Retired aircraft systems engineer. Teach math (trig and calculus) part time at the local college. Love aircraft, reading, and horses. BS from New Mexico State, MS from Ohio State.
What a wonderful series to exercise children's imaginations. Cowell develops his characters well and David Tennant does a superb job of narrating the story to children.
