Year 7 students were delighted to welcome Cressida Cowell to Prior Park College last week.

The multi-million best selling author and illustrator of the How To Train Your Dragon books was in Bath to launch her exciting new book, The Wizards Of Once, a magical, medieval adventure, full of wizards, sprites and warriors, at the Bath Children’s Literature Festival.

Baines House students were joined by almost 300 from other local schools for the event, all interested in hearing some of Cressida’s tips on becoming an author. Her number one tip – research!

Cressida also gave a sneak peak of the latest How to Train Your Dragon film, due for release in 2019.

Prior Park was also proud to sponsor Cressida’s evening event at The Forum, which marked the opening of the Bath Children’s Literature Festival.
