Meet the characters!
Get the lowdown on three cool characters from this super-cool series…
Xar is the youngest son of Encanto the Enchanter, King of Wizards. Both rebellious and brave, he has a heart of gold – and, above all, is determined to prove himself!
The seventh daughter of Sychorax, Queen of Warriors, Wish is curious and kind. Unlike other Warriors, she’s able to perform magic!
Caliburn is a talking raven who accompanies Xar. Very protective over Xar, he often worries about him getting into dangerous situations – which is why his feathers keep falling out!
Catch up with Cressida!
Author Cressida Cowell tells us about the magic behind these brilliant books…
Hi Cressida! What was your inspiration for The Wizards of Once series
My childhood holidays, playing in the ancient woodland near my grandparents’ h ouse. Also, as kid I wanted to be magic!
Haha! What do you hope readers will learn from the stories?
Xar and Wish are from different tribes and have to learn to see things from another point of view. I wanted to encourage my readers to be understanding towards others.
When did you realise that you wanted to be a writer?
I loved writing stories as a child, and when I was nine I won a writing competition! That’s when I thought I could be an author one day.
Cool! What advice would you give to kids who might want to become authors?
Read lots of different stories and practise writing as much as you can!
