The Lovereading4Kids comment

Award winning author/ illustrator Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler tell a rollicking story of fire breathing dragons, sword-swishing knights and a princess with a difference. Schoolboy, Zog has a lot of learning about flying, breathing fire and princesses. Being a good boy he tries his hardest to get a coveted gold star for his efforts. But not all the hard work in the world can stop things going wrong! Luckily there’s a feisty young princess on hand who knocks all the conventions for six in the nicest possible way.

Synopsis

Zog by Julia Donaldson

The winner of the Galaxy National Children's Book of the Year is now available in chunky board book format, perfect for Zog's youngest fans.

Zog is the keenest, and clumsiest, dragon in school - will he ever win a golden star? The story of Zog's determination has enthralled hundreds of thousands of children since its first publication in 2010.
