Summary: A lovable book about Fergus, a dog with quite a personality!

Personal Response: I adore this book! It continues to be a favorite with my children. Fergus is a hilarious dog that is beyond spoiled, but also very very loved. His antics and the author’s short, but expressive language make this a perfect read aloud.

Curriculum Connections: This book can be used with elementary classes to teach the importance of “reading” the illustrations. Without the intense and bright illustrations, the words would hold little meaning. For older students, this is a perfect introduction to children’s literature and to introduce art with unique fonts to convey meaning. ( )

This is a fiction book that takes us through the life of Fergus, the dog. I would use this book to discuss the proper way to train a pet. I would also use it for an author study over David Shannon. ( )

This book is nice for kids but not the best for those learning how to read. I did not like how the words were spelled. The author/illustrator did a poor job because the words were spelled in a very weird font so that even adults have trouble reading, let alone kids who are learning how to read. Also, the illustrations are done very sloppy so it is hard to see what the illustrator is trying to show to audience. The main idea of this book is to show the world through the eyes of a dog and to show how dogs see the same things, just in a different way. Overall this book was very poorly put together. It was purposely illustrated this way, but it falls flat because the words are lined up crooked in order to look unique, but this only makes it worse. ( )

This time we follow Fergus the dog - a very fit companion to David - as he does dog stuff all day, sorta sometimes does what he's told, but is always given a good boy, because he's a good boy. Aren't you such a good boy Fergus? Oh yes, you are!

This is a great book for young readers because it is a pretty easy read and it has a problem in the story. Overall, really cute book!
