What a good idea! Stereotypes are charmingly broken. Zog is an imaginative story about a little dragon in training. The problem is that he’s not very good at breathing fire and capturing princesses.

Luckily for Zog there is a princess on hand who nurses his injuries and volunteers to be captured so Zog can get his gold star. But that’s not all, when a young knight turns up to save her she confesses that she really wants to be a doctor not a princess. The knight thinks this is a grand idea too. But who will be their stead? You guessed it Zog!

The flying doctors take to the skies all delighted with their new career choices.

Mr Mole's Marvellous Ideas

When the days start to get shorter and there’s a nip in the air I love curling up under a blanket and sharing my favourite stories with someone I love. Zig is very funny and the bright and bold illustrations make us smile! The story teaches me an important lesson too, that it’s ok to be different!

Larry's Learning Outcomes

Generations of children love Julia Donaldson and I think that this beautifully bright book will engage children and develop their love of language. Sharing this book with an adult will allow little ones to experience the rhythm of the text and begin to link sounds to letters.
