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,

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?
