Format: Paperback
My children adore all three of the Angus books. I think they should be a classic, just like Peter Rabbit. Angus is a curious Scottie dog who wonders about many things. I think children can relate to Angus' curiosity about the world around him and the things in his own house. The text is lively and brief, written from Angus' perspective. My young one stays interested and the older one can read along. The text also contains opposites, animals, animals sounds and some history. I'd encourage parents to follow Angus on his adventures. We have many, many times.
Other books in this series include "Angus and the Cat" and "Angus and the Ducks". Both have a similar style and content. My children like them all.
The "McDuff" books by Rosemary Wells have a loveable dog as the main character and my children like these books too.

I didn't think my class of wiggly 3 year-olds would sit still for this, but they were just enthralled. Maybe the idea of being lost and finding your way back; encountering strange creatures. I love the language in this: simple yet flowing.

This book is a wonderful little work of art that you should not miss. Written in 1931, this story of a plucky and curious young Scottish terrier named Angus is a short, simple tale about a small dog's big curiosity almost getting the best of him. Angus, who is very curious about where the milk man comes from and where the wide road goes, and what kind of animals cars are, and MANY other things, finds his chance to explore when the gate to his yard is left ajar one day. He has some amazing adventures for such a little guy and they are sure to hold the attention of young listeners. The artwork in this book is truly lovely with the backgrounds being similar to silhouettes. Many of the pictures are simple black and white and others have colored washes to add interest. The drawings show the automobiles, homes, furnishings, and a bit of the clothing of the bygone day in which this book was written and greatly add to the charm of this book. Little Angus is a heart-melter and I predict you will not be able to resist him. Two other books about his adventures, Angus and the Ducks and Angus and the Cat are wonderful, too.

My mommy helped me read this when I was a mere toddler. My mommy is gone and I am an old person now, but I want to thank mommy for introducing me to the lovable Angus! Each time she took me to the library, I lalways wanted to take out the same Angus books. And now, YEARS LATER, I want to own them all. One never grows tired of the spunky little terrier and his adventures. If you are an old curmudgeon, Angus will lower your blood pressure. If you are an adult and introduce a child to Angus today, they will be thanking you half a century later--trust me!

Keep going, my little Angus--I love you!

This book introduces Angus, a small Scottish Terrier. Angus is curious about a great many things in his world (i.e. where the dog in the mirror goes).
One day the door between the inside and the outside is open. Angus can't resist going out and seeing the new things. But soon Angus can no longer find his way home. But after spending the night in a small cave, Angus finds a way to find his way back home again.
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.

Oh Angus, how we love your stories! This little curious scottish terrier is more curious that Curious George. He goes off in winter to explore where the milkman goes, finds a dog friend, meets a goat who luckily is on a chain. He runs to find more adventure and gets caught overnight in the snow. He hears a sound he knows...the milkman and follows him on his route until he finds his way home. Very heartwarming story.

This is one of three books about Angus, the little Scottish Terrier. He is like many small boys or girls

who do not want to stay safely at home, but want to take off and explore the world. Without being terribly scary

this story illustrates that sometimes we are not ready to do what we think we are ready to do, and that there are

good reasons for certain rules. Angus is very smart and learns quickly. I feel children relate to the way curiosity

tempts us to do things we should not do.

I also enjoy reading the Quack Quack Quackety Quack talk of the ducks to little children because they love

hearing an adult quack.

This book is a joy to read. Any child (and the adult reading) would appreciate the little scottie's adventures! The illustrations are very expressive and cute and their simplicity are endearing. The text is short and to the point and can be entertaining and didactic when read to a youngster. Anyone owning a scottie would see their pet's character traits in Angus immediately. This is a great book to read to a child and to expose them to the joys of reading with the fun of experiencing the antics of a small and curious dog.
