Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III is a truly extraordinary Viking hero known throughout Vikingdom as "the Dragon Whisperer"...but it wasn't always so. Travel back to the days when the mighty warrior was just a boy, the quiet and thoughtful son of the Chief of the Hairy Hooligans. Can Hiccup capture a dragon and train it without being torn limb from limb? Join the adventure as the small boy finds a better way to train his dragon and become a hero!


How to Train Your Dragon is a fantastic audiobook series. David Tenant narrates the audiobooks and it has all the bells and whistles – music before and after each chapter and wonderful voice acting (and even singing at times) by Tenant. The story follows Hiccup, the son of the chief of his Viking tribe. He’s a bit.. awkward and not much like his father. For one, he learns how to speak Dragonese, the language of dragons and uses it to get out of some interesting situations. He’s also quite scrawny and ends up with a toothless and stubborn dragon who he names Toothless.

Perhaps my favorite narration is when Toothless speaks, he’s so cute with his stuttering voice. Each book is pretty short with it centering around a specific quest. Each one involves plenty of danger, lots of humor and epic moments where you’re not sure if our heroes will prevail.


One of the best production audiobook series I’ve read. One I highly recommend.
