Zog is the keenest dragon in school. He's also the most accident-prone.
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?

A wonderfully funny new story from the creators of The Gruffalo
and Stick Man.

Another great book from Julia Donaldson. Zog is a clumbsy dragon. Who isn’t doing too well at school. But then one day his life is changed. A great message of you can do whatever you want to do if you try hard enough. 
Great read for all children. 
Axel Scheffler illustrations are brilliant

This is one of my favourite books. Zog is a really friendly dragon. I like the rhyming words and it helps me learning my phonics and reading new words. I cannot wait to read the new Zog book.

Another lovely book, this one has much more humour in it than other ones I have read. My daughter loves how Zog and the princess keep meeting up all the time. When we first got this book I think I was forced to read it everyday for two weeks.

Fabulous book. Great for all ages! My son is 16 months old and although he only looks at the illustrations, he enjoys me reading this to him. Bright colours throughout this book and is great for kids imaginations. Read this every night to my son. High recommend.

I have read this book hundreds of times to both my children. They love it and have memorized the words. It is makes my heart glow  to watch my children's faces as they laugh at it. Would recommend for 0-6 year olds but a parent will need to read to them.

What a lovely book! Zog is the keenest dragon in the class-eager to get a gold star-but perhaps not the most skilled at dragonly pursuits. My boys loved this booked with it’s colourful and fun illustrations and gentle rhyming. There’s plenty to talk about with the story and the pictures and it is fun for all the family to read together.

This is a wonderful story about a clumsy dragon that keeps hurting himself. One day a lovely princess comes to give Zog first aid. The book is very entertaining throughout and hold the attention of the childREM. The pictures add to the excitement

This is as dull as the previous 3 books, very similar stuff, Greg still isn't a nice kid and he needs some decent parenting, unfortunately his parents are pathetic so I don't see that happening soon. And you can't help but feel sorry for poor Rowley. Rodrick's pranks are brilliant, he has taken them to a new level here.

The thing that bugged me the most in this book was Greg gets 3 months off for his summer holidays! What the hell! who gets 3months off? When I was a lad it was an incredibly short 6weeks.

Some good news though, I've managed to talk my daughter into taking a break with a David Walliams book. wooooo
