Win 1 of 5 copies of The Wizards of Once by Cressida Cowell

Fans of Cressida Cowell, author and illustrator of the bestselling How to Train Your Dragon and The Wizards of Once book series, will love a giveaway I have to share with you today. Hachette Children’s Group has released a live action short video to accompany the paperback release of Cressida Cowell’s #1 bestseller, The Wizards of Once. The one minute film – produced by London-based creative agency Ralph, with direct input from Cressida Cowell herself – is inspired by The Wizards of Once story, in which a young boy Wizard, Xar, and young girl Warrior, Wish, meet in the Wildwood, beginning a magical adventure.

A twist in the video is that the action takes place in contemporary Britain’s urban streets, with the two child protagonists using their magical skills to control the movement of everyday objects… eventually leading to a hidden copy of the book itself. The video was partly inspired by the thousands of children who dress up as Cressida Cowell characters for World Book Day each year.

The Wizards of Once

Now an international bestseller, The Wizards of Once recently won the prestigious and influential 2018 Blue Peter Award for Best Story. In addition, DreamWorks has acquired all the rights for The Wizards of Once, putting Cressida’s new series on a similar path to her multi-million- selling How To Train Your Dragon series, which has inspired a generation of readers as well as DreamWorks’ movie and TV franchise of the same name. Book two in the series, The Wizards of Once: Twice Magic, will be published in September 2018.

Cressida Cowell is the author and the illustrator of the bestselling How to Train Your Dragon and The Wizards of Once book series, and the author of the Emily Brown picture books, illustrated by Neal Layton. How to Train Your Dragon has sold over 8 million books worldwide in 38 languages. It is also an award-winning DreamWorks film franchise, and a TV
series shown on Netflix and CBBC. See our review of the Playmobil How To Train Your Dragon sets. The Wizards of Once (also signed by DreamWorks), is a number one bestseller.
