31 Authors Children Love: Marjorie Flack

Oh, do we love Marjorie Flack! Her story about Ping the Duck might be her most famous, but we are all crazy about Angus the Dog. These books get re-read on a regular basis.

Angus is a loveable Scottish Terrier scamp. He makes new friends, he has ‘satiable curiosity (as Rudyard Kipling might say), and he sets out on adventures, only to find that home is really best.

The illustrations have a vintage charm (things like a milk-man with a horse drawn carriage play a major role in one story), but the humor is universal.

  1. We love the Angus books too, especially Angus and the Ducks. I read them to my son over and over. I need to get them out and read them to my daughter.
