Cressida Cowell

Cressida Cowell came to Thornden Hall last Friday  to promote her latest book ‘How to Seize a Dragon’s Jewel’, the last in the ‘How to Train your Dragon’ series.  Talking to an audience of young fans and their parents she talked about where and when she got the ideas for the books.  This was when holidaying on a remote island off the coast of Scotland.  She also showed pictures of sea creatures which had inspired various dragons.  Each book in the series has taken about a year to write as Cressida also does all the illustrations as well. 

Her talk was followed by a question and answer session.  One question was about the filming of the book.  Although she had been asked to write the script, Cressida had declined but she had enjoyed the film.  There are another two films still to be made.

Those who had bought books then had the opportunity to get them sign which involved lengthy queuing!
