Cressida Cowell is author-illustrator of the multi-million bestselling series and DreamWorks film franchise How To Train Your Dragon. She’s talking about her new series, The Wizards of Once, a fantasy, magical adventure that has already been signed up by DreamWorks and went straight to number one in the charts. Cressida will talk about her inspiration, give top tips on becoming an author or illustrator, and why she loves the films. The ‘world-conquering’ How to Train Your Dragon has sold 8 million copies in 38 languages worldwide. Cressida has been an Ambassador for the National Literacy Trust for a decade. Unmissable!
