Have you read any of Cressida Cowell's book? Which would you like to read?

Many of Cowell's books have dragons and Vikings. The children have researched both topics and used this to create quizzes, design and make dragons and describe them using adjectives. Children, here is a challenge: ask your adults at home one of your quiz questions or share one of your facts.
