Zog is all about a young dragon at Dragon School. He's really very keen and tries his best with all of his lessons, but somehow things keep going wrong and he keeps having accidents. Luckily, every time he gets into a scrape a mysterious girl comes along and fixes him up with plasters and bandages etc. Finally, Zog has to attempt the hardest task of all - capturing a princess - and finds that he's really not very good at it. He's feeling very sorry for himself when along comes the girl again - can she save the day this time?
Of course, as you'd expect this book has a happy ending...although I've only given it 4 stars instead of 5 because the ending felt a little bit forced somehow and our little boys didn't immediately fully understand it. However, that said, it's still a lovely rhyming text that mostly trips off the tongue and the pictures, as ever, are a joy to behold. There are so many little details in the illustrations that we could sit for ages whilst the boys point out all the insects, animals and other goings on in the background.
All in all, I would recommend this book to anyone with little ones as you generally can't go wrong with a Julia/Axel book. However, if you've not yet read "Room on the Broom", "Gruffalo" or "The Snail and the Whale" by the same authors then I would recommend those even more highly than this.
This is a lovely book which appeals to both boys and girls. Our almost 4-year-old boy enjoys the "dragony-ness"(!) of it, and I've tested it on a wider audience by reading it to his pre-school class who all loved the illustrations and the trademark Donaldson rhyming story. The story is simple to understand but complex enough to prompt questions from keen pre-schoolers and the illustrations are full of lovely details. It makes excellent bedtime reading as it's just the right length to be part of a "2 story" session!
My son hunts this book out amongst his ever growing collection, it is a firm favourite. Also there is enough of a story for parents to avoid chewing their own limbs off in boredom (none of the state the obvious "an Orange is Orange drivel").
If you like this I also recommend Giraffes Can't Dance.
