The Highway Rat & Zog

From the creators of The Gruffalo and Revolting Rhymes come festival favorites The Highway Rat and Zog, two animated shorts based on the much-loved children’s books by Julia Donaldson and illustrator Axel Scheffler. The clever rhyming, mesmerizing CGI, and stories with meaningful messages will delight all ages.

The Highway Rat tells a tale of a ravenous rat who steals to satisfy his craving for cupcakes, candy, and everything sweet.

In Zog, an eager but accident-prone young dragon tries his very best to learn how to fly, roar, and breathe fire at Dragon School.

Recommended age: 3+
