it was amazing

Scottish terriers always make me think of my teacher for fifth and sixth grade. Mrs. Sullivan had a scotty dog whom she doted on and bragged about. So when I saw Angus and the Cat by Marjorie Flack at the library to read to Harriet, I was also thinking about my teacher's dog.

Angus is a Scottish terrier who now has to share his home with a cat. He doesn't want to. The cat makes herself as unwelcome as Ralph the dog does to Alice the cat. The cat though has a few tricks for staying out of Angus's way, much to his consternation. Harriet and I especially love when the cat ends up on the roof to hide.

The illustrations, also done by Marjorie Flack, are bold, simple and effective. With minimal colors and details they capture the chase of the dog and cat through the yard and house. They are more realistic than ones in Ask Mr. Bear but are still recognizably Flack's style.
