Fergal is Fuming! - Fergal (Paperback)Robert Starling (author)
- 5+ in stock
Shortlisted for the Waterstones Children's Book Prize 2018
A dragon with a short temper is not a good combination, as Fergal's family and friends soon find out. He burns the dinner (literally), reduces the football goal to ashes and absolutely cannot play a nice, quiet board game.
It is only when he starts to notice other animals have clever tricks to calm down that Fergal begins to win back his friends, especially when he discovers dragons can cool off in a very handy way.
Charmingly written and illustrated, Fergal is Fuming is the perfect book to help to teach children what to do when their temper threatens to get the better of them.
British author and illustrator Robert Starling began drawing and writing as a child and hasn’t stopped since. Also a teacher, sculpter and self-confessed cake addict, Fergal is Fuming is his first book.

This picture book has an educational appeal, which, as we are all well aware, probably means the book is boring. Luckily, in this case, it's not true. the illustrations are wonderful and the story is snappy.
