The magical and exciting picture book from the number
one bestselling author and illustrator of The Gruffalo, Zog and
Stick Man.
'Madam Dragon ran a school, many moons ago.
She taught young dragons all the things that dragons need to know.
Zog, the biggest dragon, was the keenest one by far.
He tried his hardest every day to win a golden star.'
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 him with his toughest test: capturing
a princess?

Shiny foil highlights on the cover makes this a special gift

Perfect read-aloud rhyming text and stunning pictures on every

The perfect story for children starting school with bravery,
kindness, friendship and perseverance at the heart

of London) as Tabby McTat, alongside Cariad Lloyd, Joanna Scanlan
