Product description

The magical adventurous picture book from the number one bestselling author and illustrator of The Gruffalo, Zog and Stick Man.‘Meet the Flying Doctors – a dragon, knight and girl. Their names are Gadabout the Great, and Zog, and Princess Pearl.’ Princess Pearl, Sir Gadabout and their trusty ‘air ambulance’, Zog the dragon fly around tending a sunburnt mermaid, a distressed unicorn and a sneezy lion. But should princesses really be doctors? Pearl’s uncle, the King, doesn’t think so – until he himself falls ill, and only Pearl knows how to cure him.

Our January 2021 Ages 5-6 Book of the Month

I really enjoyed the amazing TV dramatisation of Zog and the Flying Doctors over the Christmas season. So I thought it would be a great moment to bring back the magic of this fantastic story and give youngsters the chance to enjoy reading this sequel to Zog again and again. Julia’s wonderful rhyming verse conveys a lovely message of caring, kindness and helping people in need that really resonate in today’s world, and Princess Pearl is a great role model for any aspiring doctors. Axel’s inimitable pictures offer plenty to pore over as you enjoy the great story, which is perfect to read aloud or for fledgling readers to attempt to read alone.

Start this year by igniting a passion for reading with this bestseller in its own right. The perfect New Year’s treat to create a special place in youngsters’ hearts with these adorable and favourite characters.
