Editorial Reviews

Review

“Among the many indigenous picture books of this season, Angus and the Ducks stands out for good and sufficient reasons. It is good to look at, it is delightful to read aloud...and above all it has an inner and outer harmony...There is every prospect that Angus and the Ducks can lay claim to a kind of permanence.” ―Books, 1930

Format: Paperback
This book is from an era where even books for young children featured long, complex sentences. So it surprised me that this was one of the first favorites of my then 9-month old daughter. Maybe hissing ducks constitute slapstick humor at that age. I like it because the illustrations are charming and the text is well written. Here's my favorite page: "Angus lapped the cool clear water. Birds sang in the mulberry tree. The sun made patterns through the leaves ............." Doesn't that just lower your blood pressure?

Angus, star of Angus Lost, is back. This time he is curious about the noises he hears coming from the other side of the hedge. When Angus finds a thin spot that he can get through, his new adventure begins as he meets the two ducks who live next door.
A simple tale with interesting illustrations tells how easy it is to become lost but that one should not give up hope. Dog fans and fans of good basic stories will love this one.

We used this book as a read aloud, my son reading to me, and he really loved the story. It is nice and short so it is perfect for beginning readers. Yet the story has enough adventure and humor to make it interesting as well.

This is one of my favorite childhood stories. I'm 27 now and have my own real life Scottish Terrier(named Angus of course). Anyone who loves terriers will absolutely adore this book. Marjorie Flack really captures the curious, naughty nature of Scotties. The illustrations are beautiful too. I highly recommend this book and the other two Angus books for any child who loves dogs.

Maybe hissing ducks constitute slapstick humor at that age. I like it because the illustrations are charming and the text is well written. Here's my favorite page: "Angus lapped the cool clear water.

I think this (or Make Way for Ducklings) was my first library book. At any rate, it starated me on a lifelong love of reading--and dogs! The illustrations capture every nuance of a dog's body language--you can practically feel Angus' warm little tummy as he stands up to reach something high. The story is not babyfied, but, as another reviewer indicates, is told with an intelligent vocabulary. Build vocab early!

I treasured my Angus book and each time my mom took me to the library (years and years and years ago), I confounded her by ALWAYS adding the same old Angus book to my pile of borrowings. I hope I will OWN them all one day!

Very cute simple story about a dog exploring outside on his own for the first time. Nice illustrations. I wish the story had a little more of a plot or a surprise. Not a favorite in our house. It is a little boring.

I bought the Angus books on a whim because I remembered reading and enjoying Marjorie Flack's "Ping" as a child. They are now my four-year-old daughter's favorite stories and we read them several times a week! They're short enough that reading three at bedtime isn't a problem, and entertaining enough that even my husband will sit down to listen while we read. Highly recommend.
