Publisher's Summary

The story continues in the 10th volume of Hiccup's How to Train Your Dragon memoirs read by David Tennant. When we last left Hiccup things were getting very dark indeed. The Dragon Rebellion has begun. Snotlout is the new Chief of the Hooligan Tribe. Stoick has been banished and given the Slavemark. And Alvin the Treacherous has eight of the King's Lost Things, and has been proclaimed the new King of the Wilderwest ... But what can Hiccup do, now all alone and in exile, hunted by both humans and dragons? Can he find the Dragon Jewel, mankind's last and only hope? And if he does, what will he do with it?

What the Critics Say

Praise for the How to Train your Dragon books: "Fiercely exciting and laugh-aloud funny, it is as full of joy for children of 7+ who have given up reading as for those who love it." (Amanda Craig, The Times)
"Children's book of the week: This book is great fun and has a Blackadderish sense of humour ... full of the sort of jokes that will make schoolboys snigger." (Nicolette Jones, The Sunday Times)
"... raucous and slapstick ... liberally illustrated with [Cressida Cowell's] riotous drawings, notes and maps." ( The Financial Times)
"[Cressida Cowell] puts a contemporary spin on the old brains over brawn moral and brings the story to a climax with a thrilling dragon duel. Lots for lots of different readers to enjoy." ( Books for Keeps)

A maturing story

Would you consider the audio edition of How to Seize a Dragon's Jewel to be better than the print version?

Listening to David Tennant brings the story alive in a way I never manage when reading the paper version to my children at bedtime so yes.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Hiccup, all of the dragons, camicazi and Fishlegs. They are gawky, funny kind, loyal and brave.

What about David Tennant’s performance did you like?

All of it.
