Fergal is Fuming!

Written by Robert Starling

Part of the Fergal Series

Fergal is Fuming! Synopsis

Shortlisted for the 2018 Waterstones Childrens Book Prize. 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.

A dear little dragon whose fiery temper causes him to burn hole in everything * Sunday Telegraph, Best Books of 2017 * A striking and very charming debut about a little dragon learning to cope with his big temper. -- Fiona Noble * The Bookseller * Dynamic illustrations and realistic situations come together in this lighthearted but important take on anger management for children * Best New Children's Books Guide, produced by the Publishers' Association and published in the Guardian 2018 * Amusing... Brilliantly simple illustrations with a lot of humour make this a future classic * Books for Keeps, Best Books of 2017 * This would be a lovely book to share with children, especially those who might get a little 'Fergal' from time to time. * Early Years Educator *

About Robert Starling

Rob began doodling creatures and characters at school and hasn't stopped since. He lives and works in Norwich, and when he's not sketching up new characters or writing down stories he can be found sculpting, brewing coffee, adjusting his headphones or foraging in the kitchen for cake. And, of course, teaching kids. Fergal is Fuming, which was shortlisted for the Waterstones Children's Book Award, was his first book.
