Publisher's Summary

Collected together for the first time, listen to the first three books that inspired the How to Train Your Dragon films: How to Train Your Dragon/How to Be a Pirate/How to Speak Dragonese.

Hiccup Horrendous Haddock the Third is a smallish Viking with a longish name. Hiccup's father is chief of the Hairy Hooligan tribe which means Hiccup is the heir to the Hairy Hooligan throne - but Hiccup feels like a very ordinary boy. Can he be a hero?

This audiobook bundle contains the first three hilarious stories in Hiccup's adventures with his dragon, Toothless. Will Hiccup lead 10 novices in their initiation into the Hairy Hooligan Tribe? Can he steal back his book of Dragonese from the Romans? Can he navigate the Fortress of Sinister and defeat the Monstrous Strangulator?

Most importantly, can Hiccup really save the Isle of Berk with a dragon who looks like an ickle brown bunny with wings? There's only one way to find out....

A simple classic

Amazing performance. I loooove to listen to english accents (or is it dialect?) Per-fect!

The story is funny, jumpy, surprising, simple, straightforward, educational, ... really, _really_ good. And it has something from everything: LitRPG? You get dragon stats. Tolkien-like linguistic? Well thought through language uses. Story? Lots. History? Well... a bit.

Fantastic for the whole family

I bought this three-book collection for my family to listen to on a long drive. I have a 7 year old and a 4.5 year old, both of whom were captivated by the stories and really enjoyed all three of them. David Tennant’s performance was wonderful (with the possible exception of his terrible Italian accent in the third book!) and even my husband and I both laughed out loud many times and were keen to listen to more. We’ll definitely be buying the rest of the series.

Irritating music

There is irritating music at the beginning of every chapter and at the beginning of each book, it's extremely loud and irritating. The actual reading by David Tennant is great though.

unnecessarily loud music!

great stories really well read, and my daughters love listening to them.
Only complaint is how loud the music between the chapters is. no idea why it's necessary as it's very annoying!!

Good. Worth the price.

This book is very good and considering you can get the first 3 books for just one credit it’s an amazing deal. I highly recommend these books.

Fantastic

Daughter and I loved it! The voices of each character made the story come alive. Though I was expecting toothless to be a night fury dragon!

How to train your dragon collection review

The voices of all the characters in this book were expressed wonderfully my favourite voice was toothless by far. The story was great with lots of twists and turns in the second one I loved Alvin the treacherous and how convincing he was pretending to be a “poor but honest farmer” ha! Over all I rate this a five stars out of five

Brilliant story and narration

The adventures of hiccup are very entertaining. The world is rich and fun. David’s narration is perfect for the story. Thoroughly enjoyed it.
My only improvement item is the volume is too quiet in some spots and too loud in others.

I'm in love with this series!

I love this series of books so much that we listen to it on car trips and during my new born' bath time, he's now 4½months and when he hears the music that's played at the start of a new chapter he looks at me with a huge grin of acknowledgement and kicks his legs in excitement!
The narrative magic by David Tennant is fantastic, I couldn't imagine anyone else better for the job!
Thankyou Cressida Cowell for your magnificent imagination! My mission now is to find, collect and read/listen to All your books, for where there's magic in one series there must be magic in all!
