Cressida Cowell's delightful books about a reluctant Viking hero are brought to life by Seven Stories, National Centre for Children's Books - the same team who created our 2012 exhibition, The Tiger Who Came to TeaA Viking's Guide to Deadly Dragons explores how Viking history, legend and dragonlore inspired Cowell's How to Train Your Dragon series.

With Cressida's hero Hiccup Horrendous Haddock the Third as your guide, the exhibition transports you to a time and place when dragons lived amongst us, where we could speak to them in Dragonese and where going to school meant learning how to be a Viking pirate!

The exhibition reveals the author's creative process through the inclusion of her original sketches, story plans, notes and manuscripts.
