Easy to read and great illustrations, but not the best on behavior modeling if a child has a dog of his own, as Fergus is very spoiled. ( )

Fergus, the main character in this book, does not always listen and do what his owner tells him to do. He makes messes and runs before his owner says, "GO!" Fergus is a good boy. Fergus gets rewarded for when he does what he is told, and sometimes, he even gets rewarded for doing things he is not told to do. Fergus begs for food, and when his owner finally gives in and gives him food, he eats it all. He gets rewarded for eating all of his food, but he shouldn't have been begging to get the food. Fergus is a good dog, and his owner adores him, even if he doesn't listen. ( )

Such a cute book. I love the illustrations, and Fergus' antics will be familiar to any dog owner. This was one of my children's favorite books when they were younger. Great illustrations. ( )

I liked this book for many reasons. Many kids have pets, while others do not but would like a pet. The writing in this book showed exactly what it's like to have a pet. For example, he wrote about everything, even when the dog tried to run away, not just the good things. I think it's good to show the children the challenges a pet owner goes through, it shows the responsibilities a pet owner has. I also liked the illustrations that were included. I liked the pictures of the dog doing the funny things the author wrote about. The pictures were silly and made you laugh. The author drew a picture of the dog trying to run away that would make a class crack up! It would be a fun book to read to a class. The "big picture" of this book is how much work it is to take care of a pet, but how worth it, it is in the end. This can help readers realize how big of a responsibility having a pet is before they decide to adopt one. ( )

Great children’s book. A guide to the actions and responsibility of having a pet. Fergus a Terrier is calm, sweet and everything in between. An easy read for most kindergartners, with illustration little ones can figure out. ( )
