More About Marjorie Flack
Marjorie Flack first got the idea for her classic story from her first book, written by her friend Helen Lomen. The Peking ducks in Angus and the Ducks so intrigued her that she began researching them. The Story About Ping was the result. She went on to write and illustrate many more children's stories, including Boats on the River, illustrated by Jay Hyde Barnum, which was named a Caldecott Honor Book. Ms. Flack died in 1958. Kurt Wiese illustrated almost three hundred books for children. Books he both wrote and illustrated include You Can Write Chinese and Fish in the Air. Both stories were named Caldecott Honor Books, and reflect his experiences as a traveler in China where he lived for six years. Mr. Wiese died in 1974.

Angus books Jan 3, 2008
I love all the Angus books. Having owned a Scottie dog, I am particularly thrilled with the illustrations - they are so accurate. I used to read these to my daughter when she was a child & am now buying them for all my friends' little kids. I'll keep my set forever. The stories are so endearing.

Still more Angus adventures Jul 24, 2003
Angus has been lost and he has met the ducks, but this time Angus takes on his most puzzlesome adventure. Angus tries to match wits with the wily cat who lives in his house.
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.
Values Jul 6, 2002
In this second book of the series, Angus is jealous of the cat at first and a little put out that he's not the "only child" any more. But, after learning more about the cat and feeling more secure in his home, Angus finds that the cat can be a good companion after all. This is a great story for children who are soon to have a new brother or sister. I'm so glad these books from the 1930's have been reissued. Many children may find them old fashioned, the illustrations aren't the bright crayon colors so popular today, but the stories still hold after all these years. It's up to parents and grandparents to show the children that, just because the books seems old fashioned, the stories they tell were valid when they were written, valid before they were written, and will be valid for all time. Please, read this and the other two "Angus" books to your children. Talk about them. We need to go back to tolerance, gentleness, and understanding, if just for the time it takes to read these short books. There' too much violence in a lot of the contemporary children's books. I won't review "Angus and the Ducks" and "Angus Lost" separately; I've said it all here.
