Children need stories.

Storytelling for children is a wonderful way to impart knowledge and should begin with scripture.

Very interesting

I enjoy hearing this. Both the process by which she creates, the history of her series, and the message of storytelling in general.

Made reading books better

My kid and I loved listening to this. Hearing Cowell's positive passion was infectious. Learning about her childhood also added a other level of enjoyment (especially since my daughter is an avid bird watcher). I especially enjoyed how the interviewer's questions and how the author delved into different artistic medium. I worried my kid would be upset that the books are different from the movie (she wasn't). It was a relief to hear the author wasn't disappointed and expressed so well the need for elements to change according to the craft. I know we will both rewatch, relisten, and reread but with new perspectives. It will feel like experiencing the pieces in a slightly new way!

Very lively

Cressida Cowell makes for a very entertaining interviewee, she talks in great detail about her ideas and influences and comes across as a very amiable and intelligent person. Love her books and sense of humour.

Author's Interview

Cressida Cowell is wonderful to listen to. An engaging and passionate author with great ecentricity. Audible should do more of these whenever possible.

My only niggle was the interviewer calling the series How to Train A Dragon when it's called How to Train Your Dragon. A small but important detail. Cressida must have been mentally correcting him just like I did as it happened more than once.
