Today, Junior School pupils were very excited to meet internationally bestselling author-illustrator Cressida Cowell, creator of the How to Train Your Dragon books (which is also a film series and a TV series) and the Wizards of Once series. Cressida Cowell is also the current Waterstones Children’s Laureate.
Cressida spoke to pupils about the inspiration behind her How to Train Your Dragon series and her new book, The Wizards of Once: Knock Three Times.
Cressida shared inspirational advice with pupils about creativity and endeavour, talked about what it’s like to have your books made into a film and introduced pupils to the world of The Wizards of Once by sharing sneak looks into her sketchbooks to show you how she develops the magical creatures and worlds in her award-winning series.
After Cressida’s engaging and interesting talk, pupils were able to meet Cressida and have their books signed.
