I was expecting more of a storyline...
Reviewed in the United States on September 22, 2015
I purchased this book for my niece's birthday, she is going to be 5 years old. She loves all the David books and especially loves "A Bad Case of Stripes", all by David Shannon, so I was looking for another David Shannon book that she might enjoy. I was very disappointed by this book however, upon receiving it. The pictures in this book are cute and this book could possibly work with a much younger audience but I felt like this book would not hold my niece's attention at all. I was expecting a cute story about a dog but instead there are just pages with a few words on them that don't really come together in story like fashion. In the book the own of the dog Fergus is talking to him (saying only a few words or commands) as they go about their day but it just jumps from one scene to the next. I guess if that's the kind of book you are looking for then this would be fine for you, I was looking for a bit more of a storyline though and I will be returning this.
