Zog (by Julia Donaldson) £5.99 @ Red House
Could this be the new Gruffalo? I have a sneaky feeling that Zog is going to be just as popular!
Zog is a dragon and he's very enthusastic at school. But there's a problem - he's incredibly accident prone! He's always having accidents, flying into trees and setting his wings on fire - poor Zog, I love him already.
Zog has to capture a princess (I thought this was very amusing) and it really does seem that there's little hope of this happening until a little girl arrives and helps to patch up Zog's bumps and brusies.
Maybe she'll be able to help him catch a princess!
The reading age guide is three years and upwards, but I'm sure this is a book that will be loved from a much earlier age than that if it's a book at bedtime.
This is the hardback version and there are 32 pages of literary and illustration delight for you, and your child, to savour.
