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.

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.
Fifty years later . . . Apr 7, 2007
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 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.

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.
