  • Publisher's Weekly

    Starred review from March 31, 2014
    Legendary Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III comes to life thanks to a spirited performance from narrator Tennant. In this first volume of Cowell’s popular series, Hiccup must, as a rite of passage, catch a dragon. When he manages to capture one—which he names Toothless—Haddock endeavors to train the creature via his own methods. In this winning audio edition, Tennant’s narration is theatrical and sure to entertain listeners of all ages. The narrator’s pacing is perfect, his character voices unique, and the accents he creates believable. An enthusiastic performance from Tennant makes this a must-listen, especially for fans. Ages 8–12. A Little, Brown paperback.

  • AudioFile Magazine With its slapstick comedy and zany adventures, this book appeals to those who like gross, disgusting things--say, your average 7-10-year-old. The likable, though timid, Hiccup must find, tame, and train a dragon to stay in his clan. Gerard Doyle is in his element--his British accent makes him sound at times like a swaggering pirate, and he also gives a variety of voices to the whole range of characters--the bullies, the boys, and their leaders. This is a story that begs to be told in an over-the-top style. The alliterative names--like Hairy Holligans--and the parodies--such as, seadragonus giganticus maximus--add to the fun, while short, clipped sentences, bard-like singing, and the story itself will appeal to children of all ages.

  • Publishers Weekly "Fresh, funny dialogue...Short chapters, clever slapstick, kid-pleasing character names...will keep even reluctant readers turning these pages—and chuckling as they go."
