Village Books is pleased to partner once again, with the Bellingham Public Library to bring the author of the beloved How to Train Your Dragon series to Bellingham! 
Once there were Wizards, who were Magic, and Warriors, who were not. But Xar, son of the King of Wizards, can't cast a single spell. And Wish, daughter of the Warrior Queen, has a banned magical object of her own. When they collide in the badwoods, on the trail of a deadly witch, it's the start of a grand adventure that just might change the fabric of their worlds. Complete with ogres, sprites, snowcats, and all manner of magical creatures, this new series is the start of something great! With Cressida Cowell's trademark wit, and the same stunning combination of action, adventure, humor, heart, and incredible artwork that made How to Train Your Dragon a beloved bestselling franchise, The Wizards of Once will transport and enchant readers.

Cressida was born on 15th April 1966 in London. She still lives in London. She is married to Simon Cowell (not THAT Simon Cowell), and she has three children, Maisie (12), Clemmie (10) and Alexander (7). She studied at Oxford University, (English), and St Martin’s and Brighton University (Illustration). Cressida won the Nestle Children's book award in 2006 and the How to Train Your Dragon film has been nominated for the 2011 BAFTAs and the Oscars. Cressida won Philosophy Now magazine's 'Contributions in the Fight Against Stupidity Award' in November 2015.
