December 2010

Posted on: Saturday, December 11, 2010  

Lots of people have been writing in to ask about the next book in the series. I am very busy writing the ninth Hiccup book, How to Steal a Dragon's Sword, but I haven't quite finished it yet...It is going to be coming out next year. 

The DVD of the 'How to Train your Dragon' film is out now, and DreamWorks have announced that they are making two more films, the next one to come out in 2013.

They are also making a television series, and an arena show with 'Global Creatures', the company that produced the 'Walking with Dinosaurs' arena show.

There has been a technical problem with the 'Questions' and 'Contact' areas of my website, so if you haven't received an answer to your question, please could you ask your question again, and I'll try and reply? Thankyou, and sorry about that!

Dear Cressida, I am 8 and am on the 7th book, called How To Ride a Dragon's Storm. This is my favourite series, tied with Harry Potter. My question is, can you write a book writen by Toothless, How to Train Your Viking and How to be a Pirate (again but written by Toothless) and to speak Viking. Thank you for your awesome writing. I even dream about the characters at night. Love, Sienna p.s. I live in Victoria, Canada

My brother (6) and I (8) recently discovered your books and have read #1-7 several times especially over the holidays. We enjoy acting out the stories together and even make our own. We were excited to hear about the new books, but can't seem to find#8 in the U.S. We are excited to read #8! School starts soon so we have to back to read by flashlight under the covers in our rooms.

Dear Cressida Cowell, I love your books. I also liked the movie very much and saw it three times. I was wondering, what is the main idea and plot of the new movie going to be? Is Alvin the Treacherus going to be in it? Will Gimbeard the Ghastly pop up? What will the t.v. series be like? I look forward to your new book. Happy New Year and please write back. Your fan, Casey

I love all of the books but my favourite book would be "How to break a dragons heart". I am nine years old and am considering starting a how to train your dragon fan club. When I read the books, I got so addicted with dragons that I envented 3d paper dragons. The way I make them is complicated, but I manage to do it.
