Cressida Cowell grew up in London and on a small, uninhabited island off the west coast of Scotland. The island had no roads, houses or electricity, leaving Cressida lots of time to write and draw.
Now grown and with a husband and three children of her own, Cressida is the author of the popular "How to Train Your Dragon Series". The 8th book in the series, How to Break a Dragon's Heart, was released in June, 2011. She has also written the Emily Brown picture books, featuring Emily Brown, a little character with big personality, and her sidekick Stanley, the stuffed rabbit.
