    Story
    "Awesomeness Fun."

    This story is continued from the last book, so read in order. I love this series. It is so funny and there is always a crazy adventure happening. I do love a good children's book. Gobber the Belch is my favorite character, with Stoic coming in close. I think it is great that there is a classification of the different types of dragons and a strength category, the only part where I wish I had the actual books to look at. I love the narration it really helps to visualize the story. I will defiantly be listening to all of the books in this series, maybe a couple times.

    Story
    "Wonderful old fashioned story"

    First let me say, the music used to introduce a new chapter has improved.
    I have enjoyed David Tennant's acting in everything from Casanova to Dr Who to Hamlet to Decoy Bride to Broadchurch, to name just a few of his acting jobs. I also love his readings of the Dr Who audible books. However, I must say, he absolutely shines in matching the author's tone when he reads the books in this series. His ability to create unique voices for so many characters is amazing!
    I was surprised at how unlike the wonderful "How to Train Your Dragon" the books are but like un-identical twins, I love them both. Like the movies, the books have characters who are strong and well formed but I think the book's lessons have greater depth. The humor as written by Cowell and read with "tongue in cheek" by Tennant is my greatest joy. And who came up with those hilarious names? You can just see the characters as they romp through the books. These books have something for young and old alike

    As a Lecturer in the Teaching of Literacy, I believe that the heart of learning to read is the love of stories... A love that has no end.

    Story
    "Hilarious exploits make driving a treat"
    Would you consider the audio edition of How to Train Your Dragon: How to Cheat a Dragon's Curse to be better than the print version?

    Having read the printed version out loud to my eldest son, I get to enjoy the exploit of Hiccup and Toothless as much as my children do now. Fabulous narration makes listening an adventure that I can enjoy as much as my 5 year old. The antics of Hiccup and his motley group of friends make dreary car rides an everyday quest into a distant past.


    What other book might you compare How to Train Your Dragon: How to Cheat a Dragon's Curse to and why?

    You need to start at the beginning of the series and work your way through... If you think it has anything to do with the movie, you're wrong. You'll be on a whole different adventure.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I can't tell you... It might give away something you should explore instead!
