Zog and the flying doctors
Zog and the flying doctors are the sequels to the story ‘Zog’. Zog ended with Gadabout and Princess Pearl fly away on Zog to become the first of the flying doctors.
The story begins where princess Pearl is finally a doctor, Gadabout is performing surgery and Zog is flying them from patient to patient. They tend to a sunburnt mermaid, a unicorn with an extra horn, and a lion who’s got the flu. While flying, Princess Pearl discovers her uncle’s castle and visits him. The princess’ uncle, who is the king, is old-fashioned and insists that she cannot be a doctor. When she disagrees, he imprisons her, and she is forced to sit around wearing a fancy dress and tiara. Despite Zog and Gadabout’s efforts, they could not rescue the princess. Unfortunately, the king fell ill one day, and no doctors could cure him. Princess Pearl said she could help and told Gadabout and Zog to collect ingredients for her concoction. Will the king get cured and release the Princess?
Zog became a favourite in our home and I loved this story more as I Netflixed more Christmas princess stories. I reminded Nathan anyone can do anything irrespective of gender and he was so captivated by the dragon, princess and castle. A captivating story and add it to your library.
