Nel chats to top authors

Nel went to meet top children's authors Tom Palmer and Cressida Cowell and chat about why they want more kids to read.

Tom and Cressida - author of the "How to Train Your Dragon" series - are both working with the Premier League and the National Literacy Trust to promote reading.

They talk to Nel about whether there are boys' books and girls' books and how much a front cover makes you want to read what's inside.
