A new Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler tale will be retold in the Forest of Dean, thanks to a new Zog trail which opens in the new year.
The trail will open at Beechenhurst on Friday 11 January 2019, and follows the premiere of the animated version of the story which will air on BBC One over Christmas.
The trail follows in the footsteps of The Gruffalo, Stick Man, and Highway Rat trails which have run at Forestry Commission sites across the UK in recent years.
The trail will tell the tale of Zog, a loveable and clumsy dragon who wants to win a golden star at school. Children are invited to into the forest classroom to learn lessons just like Zog, including how animals fly, what sounds they make and how they catch their prey.
Alice Mayne is head of recreation at the Forestry Commission and said: ‘The trails will be an amazing adventure, encouraging visitors to make the most of the winter season in our beautiful forests.’
