Zog and the Flying Doctors

Zog and the Flying Doctors

Illustrated by Axel Scheffler

Meet the Flying Doctors – a dragon, knight and girl.
Their names are Gadabout the Great, and Zog, and Princess Pearl.

“Another brilliantly witty and perfectly rhyming Donaldson classic with a feminist twist.” Huffington Post

“Donaldson’s characteristic jaunty rhyme is perfectly paced and no one illustrates her words better than Scheffler” Daily Mail

Julia says ...

I don’t often write sequels, but in a way the ending of Zog (when the dragon teams up with the Princess and Knight as a flying doctor team) seemed more like a beginning and I couldn’t help wondering how they would get on.

During the first Coronavirus lockdown Axel did a great pictures of the Flying Doctors wearing protective gear.

Magic Light’s animation of Zog and the Flying Doctors was shown on television on Christmas Day, December 2020.
