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!

Love Fergus. Most dog owners recognize Fergus and his actions. ( )

Fergus is a Westie terrier, irrepressible and uncontrollable. The large-scale illustrations capture every line and motion of this canine as he tears his way through this funny story.

In my opinion this is a great book to read to children who are learning how to take care of a pet or for a child who may want a pet. David Shannon's illustration demonstrates the daily routines of a pets life through vivid colors with every brush stroke. The illustrations make the readers feel as if they are there learning with the reader about pets. The language was quick, witty, and realistic. The book pushes the reader to understand the importance of taking care of their pets and how yes it is rewarding but it is also not as easy as they might think. I would recommend this story for younger readers to read. ( )

I have never owned a dog, this book takes you through the day in the life of someone who has a dog. This is a realistic fiction book. Fergus' owner asks him if he wants to go for a walk in the morning. Fergus really likes to do the opposite of what his owner tells him. For example, he gets served his dinner but won't eat it until his owner puts whipped cream on it. ( )
