Zog is a young dragon who desperately wants to win a gold star in his dragon classes. Unfortunately, he isn’t having much luck. Flying classes ended with him crashing into a tree, though he was patched up with a band-aid from a young girl. In Year Two, Zog learned how to roar. The same girl, a little older now, offered him a peppermint for his scratchy throat after he tried too hard. The next year, Zog learned how to breathe fire but set his own wing on fire. Again, the girl was there to bandage his wing. The final test was to capture a princess. Zog tried and tried, but could not manage it. The girl showed up and revealed herself as a princess and offered to be captured by Zog. Zog got a gold star from his teacher, and the princess revealed herself to want to be a doctor instead. To find out how it all works out, you will have to quest into the story for yourself.
