‘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
for toddlers

kindness, friendship and perseverance at the heart
