As it is our school book week, who better to help us with our writing than a well-known, fantastic author?! This week we will be having some help from Cressida Cowell, author of many children's books, including How To Train Your Dragon. 

First of all, watch the following videos of Cressida reading the first chapter of How To Train Your Dragon. https://vimeo.com/507420868/cdbbc5001e

Then, watch her next video where you will need some paper and a pencil to complete her map task. https://vimeo.com/510248219/18b0d7e1a6
