Book Pick - Zog by Julia Donaldson

Book: Zog
Author: Julia Donaldson
Illustrator: Axel Scheffler


I'm back with Julia Donaldson... and with another book. Z got 2 brand new books last week Zog and Tabby McTat (she loves both). We will review the later next week. I read somewhere recently that Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler are a match made in heaven, and I completely believe they were meant to produce brilliant books together.

Why I picked it and what was my Reaction: Z got this book as a gift, everyone knows she loves Donaldson. My elder sister gifted it to Z, and she was hooked on to the book immediately. She loves the way she can relate to Madam Dragon and compares her to her teacher at school... it is funny but true.

The Toddler's take: Z loves Donaldson, dragons and school... hence Z is completely obsessed with the book. She reads the book every single day and within a week she has memorized the book already. She reads the book on her own throughout the day. 

What it is about: Madam Dragon runs a school and trains little dragons. Zog (one of her students) is very hardworking and has his eyes on the Golden Star. He tries to complete all the tasks that Madam Dragon gives, but keeps getting into trouble. A little Princess named Pearl helps Zog at every step. In the end Zog gets the golden star and becomes an ambulance for the flying doctors, i.e Princess Pearl & a knight.

How We Read it: Drama... Drama and a lot of Drama.

Favorite Line: 'Now that you've been shown, you can practice on your own...' I don't know why but Z has to repeat this line like a 100 times a day.

Age Group:  3+
