Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler (illustrator)
Zog is the keenest dragon in school. He is 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 in his toughest test, capturing a princess? A wonderfully
Funny new story from the creators of Gruffalo and Stick Man.

This is another great read from the Donaldson/Scheffler team. The illustrations are in the same vein as those you would expect from Gruffalo and the like; clever, funny, brightly coloured and plenty to accompany the story for a little reader.
The story of the dragons made me smile alot. It’s great to see them learn how to be dragons and make plenty of mistakes along the way. Dragon school looks cool and is a great idea for children to relate to.
I also enjoyed the character of the leading lady, I can’t tell you her name without spoiling a plot twist! It was brilliant to have a strong minded girl at the centre of everything. She makes her own decisions, is very brave and gets her man. What more could you want? It is funny to see her sorting out the dragons and her knight. She makes very good life choices too, helping others and helping herself.
Verdict: if you’re a fan of this team then you should add this book to your collection
