Book of the week: Zog
The keenest dragon in school8 November 2010
It’s no secret I am a fan of Julia Donaldson. When it comes to kids books that parents love too, she is simply a genius. I can recite several of her books by heart and given the choice, The Gruffalo and What the Ladybird Heard are always amongst my top picks from our bookshelf.
A magnificent new picture book from the creators of The Gruffalo, Zog is the keenest dragon in school. He’s also the most accident-prone, flying into trees and even setting his own wing on fire. Luckily, a mysterious little girl always comes by and patches up his bumps and bruises. But will she be able to help Zog with his toughest test yet: capturing a princess? And will Zog ever manage to win a gold star? Full of rollicking rhymes and dragon-filled mountain scenes, this is the latest adorable rhyming treat from the king and queen of the picture book world, starring an irrepressible hero who always gives his all!
