How to Train your Dragon Audiobook Review

19 04 2010

The new DreamWorks movie “How to Train your Dragon” is a tale about a young viking named Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III, son of the fearless leader of the Hairy Hooligans.  The story is based on the book by Cressida Cowel.  We are so excited to let you know that the audiobook is now available in the App store so you can bring it with you on your next adventure whether it be to the store, to grandma’s house, or to Wild Dragon Cliff to find a dragon of your own.

Children and adults will love this story full of adventure, bravery, and a little mischief as Gerard Doyle narrates Hiccup’s rites of passage to become a full member of the Hairy Hooligans – obtaining and training a dragon.  Hiccup and his best friend Fishlegs have a hilariously difficult time following the instructions in the How to Train your Dragon book from the Hooligan Library.  Not only is it entertaining, but you may find you learn a few words of dragonese along the way.

So, be a hero – download the audiobook for your kids or yourself  to see if Hiccup and his dragon Toothless make it to Thor’s Thursday in one piece – or risk exile!

How curious – we have been enjoying how to train your dragon and others in the same series on audiobook but ours are narrated by David Tennant (famous over here in the UK for Dr. Who). He reads with a brilliant scottish accent. I haven’t heard of Gerard Doyle – is he American? Is the book narrated with an american accent? In our version there’s also lots of music which is great fun and adds a lot to the narration.

yeah I’m American but I prefer Tennant, he’s a wonderful actor and he puts so much character into the narration. They ever do more than 5 audiobooks though? would love 6 to 9.
