22 Nov Meet-the-Author Book Reading: Spinning Fantasy from Real Life
Can you imagine getting dropped off on an uninhabited island off the coast of Scotland for two weeks each summer with your family? While your dad spent days on end bird watching, you wandered all over discovering all the nooks and crannies imaging the Vikings that once inhabited the island and a time when dragons roamed wild. It seems like something right out of a book, but it really happened to Cressida Cowell. She took real experiences from her childhood summers spent on that tiny island, and turned them into the island of Berk and the adventures of Hiccup in How to Train Your Dragon.
Listen to Cressida Cowell talk about the inspiration behind How to Train Your Dragon.
