    One thought on “Good Boy, Fergus!”

    1. I loved this book and highly recommend it to anyone who has ever had a dog. With each page, I laughed about how simply Shannon has captured both the joys and frustrations of owning a dog. The two page spread where the owner tries to get Fergus to come inside, going from polite calling to shouting desperation to pathetic begging all while Fergus innocently smells a tree, shows that Shannon knows the life of a dog owner. But, my favorite part of the book is a colorful four panel progression showin [...]

    2. The star of this laugh-out-loud picturebook is David Shannon's own dog, a naughty yet adorable West Highland terrier, Fergus.The silly and sweet story in Good Boy, Fergus! (which is visually and plot-wise reminiscent of Shannon's Caldecott Honor-winning No, David!) is told through the close collaboration between brightly colored, cartoonish illustrations and a few hand-drawn phrases that together perfectly capture the joys and frustrations of a dog owner:I wouldn't feed my dog whipped cream thou [...]

    3. WowI just read some of the reviews giving this book 1, 2 and 3 stars. I really don't understand this and some of the justifications are interesting. It's true that there isn't much story in here but the illustrations tell the story. There are many things for children to look for and to discuss with their guardians. As a Westie owner myself I had to have this book. The images are gorgeous and I could relate to everything the owner endured and the dog did. I especially related to the centrefold wh [...]

    4. Not a lot of deep text, but a great story nonetheless. Anyone with a dog will be able to relate to this one, and children are no exception. Something that kept all my aged children engaged, we all enjoyed this one.

    5. Good boy Fergus is another spin off of David Shannon's life. The dog in the story is based on David's dog.

    6. I'm not a fan of David Shannon illustrations or their messages and I didn't realize who wrote it when I picked this book up. I will say that it definitely was relatable when Fergus was being called to come inside and the author had to call him multiple times to get his attention. It really made me think of my own dog and how hard it is for me to get him to come inside when he is exploring the yard. It was a cute story but I enjoy stories with more of a plot line rather than random events.

    7. (KidLit ED204 category: illustrator project)"Good Boy, Fergus!" is written and illustrated by David Shannon, of "No, David!" fame!Fergus is a cute little puppy that just has a little bit of trouble understanding what his human wants him to do. Even so, his human always has a "Good Boy" for little Fergus. Fergus' silly antics, including peeing on everything in sight (at least it was outside!) will have kids of all ages giggling. A happy little book!

    8. This book starts off with a really interesting technique called end pages. Not all authors use end pages but they are a cute add in to story books and provide a few more pictures for the children to look at. The end pages in Good Boy, Fergus have white backgrounds with a bunch of different pictures of bones all over them. The book tells a cute short story about a dog named Fergus. The book takes the reader through a perfect doggy day. Fergus enjoys everything that he does and has so much chasing [...]

    9. I chose Good Boy, Fergus! for the Gryphon Award book. This adorable story is about a dog that is very rambunctious and has a hard time listening. Fergus is like the David of dogs and this book is just as entertaining as David's. This book would be very fun to read to preschoolers and I feel like they would become very involved in the story because of all the mischief that Fergus gets into. The illustrations are very bright and full of energy and drama.

    10. Good Boy, Fergus! by David Shannon is a funny, entertaining story about a dog named Fergus who is always finding a way to get into trouble. Whether that meant chasing cats, motorcycles, knocking over plants and just doing things that dogs tend to do, Fergus is still a "good boy" at the end of the day no matter what he has done. Fergus would not always come when he was called or eat when he should and when he would be told to lay down or roll over, he would do the exact opposite. The story starts [...]

    11. The book follows a little dog named Fergus through his daily life activities. Fergus goes for a walk,got his belly scratched, performed some tricks for treats and even got a bath. I really enjoyed reading this book because it reminded me of things my dog does. Such as chase cars, hating taking a bath and eating whip cream. I also really liked how the text of the book appear. It covered a lot of the page, was colorful and changed size depending on how someone would say the word.For example, when [...]

    12. Meet David Shannon's beloved dog,Fergus! Fergus a typical dog is depicted doing typical dog things throughout the story dedicated to him the reader can see the Fergus gets belly rubs, he gets to play outside, bark at things outside while on his walk, and then he gets the dreaded bath that no dog likes. David Shannon did a wonderful job of capturing a day in a dog's life in Good Boy, Fergus. This has to be one of my all time favorite children's books I have read to date. I feel like I can relate [...]

    13. Fergus is a dog that we get to follow around throughout his day and see what he does. Fergus gets loud and rowdy around cats and motorcycles and really loves whipped cream on his food. He is your typical dog that loves a good belly scratch and just loves to be loved. I thought this book was really entertaining and appropriately written for the age range it is written to. I think this book would be a really good tool in the classroom to show a process. We see Fergus' process of going through the [...]

    14. This story is adorable. Any child will like this story because it has a dog as the main character named Fergus. Throughout the story Fergus does silly things dogs do like chasing a cat, getting into a garden, and begging for food. The illustrations are like they're hand drawn. It makes it more relatable to the reader. I give this story a 4 out of 5. The only reason I didn't rate it a 5 is because I would have liked a little more interaction with the owner.

    15. If you have ever owned a dog, you should read this book. Fergus is so adorable and the pictures of him are so realistic/true to life of owning a dog (especially for a dog who is mischievous and not the sharpest tack in the box). Also four letters c-u-t-e!

    16. I like this book because overall I enjoy the style of David Shannon's writing and illustration. I like that this follows that theme and that this is a story of who we assume is David and his dog. It highlights the idea of the love and friendship between dog and man.

    19. Good Boy, Fergus by Dave Shannon, Copyright 2006 Genre: FictionKit Lit: Dave Shannon Book This is such a cute book. This book is funny but also entertaining. It’s about a dog named Fergus who is always finding ways to get into trouble. Whether its going outside or begging for food. No matter what he does though, Fergus is always a good boy.

    20. Reading level: K-low 1 Shannon uses much of the same pictures types of that used in the "David" books. The illustrations are very child-like and appear to be draw by a child. The dog is the only white thing on most pages and stands out against the dark backgrounds. The text is written like a lot of his other books. Rather than being in straight lines, it is written much like a kindergarten child would write, all over the place. It's not typed like a chapter book, rather it is written like actual [...]

    21. The book Good Boy Fergus! is about a man and his dog. It's mostly about the dog's life. Fergus is just like your average dog. He doesn't listen right away all of the time. He likes to go outside and get dirty. He enjoys to eat and be loved. It's a nice book to read to a kid that has a pet. Fergus likes to eat and chase after things. The whole book is just a bunch of commands to the dog and it although the owner of the dog is never formally introduced, it's clear how much he loves his dog.The boo [...]
