What do dragons learn at Madam Dragon's school?
How to fly. . .
How to roar. . .
How to breathe fire!

Zog is the most eager student in the class, but he's also the most accident-prone. With each test (and each bump, bruise, or scrape), his dream of earning a gold star seems further away than ever.

But a mysterious girl keeps coming to his rescue. And when Zog faces his toughest test yet, she may be just the person to help Zog win classroom glory!

The beloved creators of Room on the Broom, The Gruffalo, and Stick Man are back with this tale of an unexpected hero who's good as gold.
