Events at this Venue


This sequel to the bestselling Zog, racing around the kingdom courtesy of their trusty ‘air ambulance’, aka Zog the dragon.

Sunburnt mermaids, distressed unicorns and sneezy lions? They’re all in a day’s work for Zog and his high-flying friends! There’s only one problem: the king doesn’t think princesses can be doctors. Until he gets sick, that is. Will the Flying Doctors be able to save him?

Each 40-minute story session sees Axel reading and drawing from Zog and the Flying Doctors and one of his other bestselling books. After each session there will be a book signing – limited to one book per child.

Originally from Germany, Axel has lived in the UK for over 30 years, 20 of which have been spent in a creative partnership with author Julia Donaldson.

Suitable for ages 3-7 years
