The rollicking sequel to How to Train Your Dragon and How to Be a Pirate offers a fast-paced plot, slapstick humor, witty dialogue, to enhance an exciting tale featuring Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III.

Hello, my name is Teresa and I'm an addict.
There is so much fun and adventure in this series I can't wait to read more. If you are a fan of children's book such as Harry Potter or Percy Jackson then you should get this series to try out. Although this book is not as long or intricate it is still totally worth reading, also the stories are totally different. Do read How to Train your Dragon books in order for max enjoyment. David Tennant is an awesome narrator. He really makes this already great book, ten times better.
A dreamer who loves the adventures hidden in every story!!
I love Fishlegs! He is hilarious! As usual this book is another gem in the series and does not disappoint. It is funny and entertaining. Cressida Cowell is a genius and David Tennant is a pure joy to listen to. I don't think they could have picked a better narrator.
Now on to the next one!!
2nd only to the first How to Train Your Dragon when it comes to humorous books. I don't usually listen to children's books, but I need some really really light, unpretentious and fun distractions right now.
Reunion with Toothless at Fort Sinister
Laugh and feel sad
When Hiccup flew with help of the micro dragons ! And the second time Alvin might have died !
How to train your dragon, How to be a Pirate !
He did each voice like there were many people as to one !! I tip my hat to him, indeed !!
Komakazi was a perfect opposite for Hiccup !! Was amazed on how each chapter changed the story !
These How to Train your Dragon series are wonderful reading or listening !!
But she was always so quiet...
The story itself, especially with the delivery by the narrator, was fantastic. VERY much different from the movie, but amazing in its own right. David Tennant did an awesome job as the narrator for this story, giving each character their own voice and highlighting elements of personality through said voice. Volume does shift quite a bit, but not enough to be disrupting to me. Flow was fairly good, with the exception of the sound effects between EVERY chapter, which disrupted things quite a bit. A bit at the very beginning and end of the story, sure, but every chapter? Not so much.
