Fergus is a lovable West Highland terrier who never quite manages to live up to his off-stage owner’s expectations. He doesn’t come when called, he begs when he’s told not to, and he never gets those commands to sit and roll over quite right. And yet he is greatly loved, and is constantly told “Good boy, Fergus,” after his master gives up on obedience and gives in to Fergus’s considerable charms. And readers, too, will give in to his charms as they enjoy his familiar doggie behaviors, perfectly depicted in David Shannon’s amusing paintings. (Ages 3–6)
