Thoroughly enjoyed by the whole family

What did you like best about this story?

The humour, the names of the characters, the David v. Goliath theme, the triumph of the underdog.

Which character – as performed by David Tennant – was your favourite?

All the characters were great. We loved the Sean Connery-esque Stoic the Vast, we loved Gobba the Belch and of course Toothless.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Laugh mostly although I was a bit teary about Toothless at the end.

Any additional comments?

My three kids (11, 9 and 7 - girls and boys) loved it as did my husband and I. Brilliant.

Not just for kids

David Tennant does a stellar job bringing the story to life. Even if you are not a kid anymore, Cressida Cowell's tales of Hiccup are so much fun to listen to that it is seriously addictive. Shame though that this is an abridged version.
