VIDEO: David Tennant Introduces How To Train Your Dragon - The Books

With the release of the second How To Train Your Dragon movie just around the corner, it's the perfect time to discover, or revisit, the incredible series of books that inspired the animated features.

Discover the world created by author Cressida Cowell as she takes us back to a time where dragons roamed the earth and lurked beneath the oceans and our Viking hero Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III was just a scrawny young boy. Learn more about the Isle of Berk and Hiccup's adventures with Toothless the dragon, Fishlegs, Snotlout, Stoick the Vast and the many more colourful characters that populate the pages of the twelve books recounting Hiccup's journey to take up his rightful place as the leader of the Hairy Hooligans tribe.

In a video trailer, David Tennant introduces us to the book series:

David also narrates the audiobook series, available on CD or audio download.
