On Tuesday night students from Accrington Academy went to meet Cressida Cowell. Cressida is one of the UK’s biggest authors, she is the author and illustrator of the fantastically popular ‘How to Train Your Dragon’, which has been turned into phenomenally popular movies and a television series.
Cressida spoke to her audience about her life growing up and spending most of her childhood on a remote Island in Scotland, she enjoyed fishing with her father and imagining rocks were dragons……this is where she got some of her ideas for her books.
The book is about Wizards and a Warrior Tribe, she gripped the audience by reading some of the book and showing a clip on film about the book.
She then answered question and personalised books and was quite happy to have photographs taken with all the children…
