David Barrow - All books by this author
Family, friendship, sharing, vacations, and apartment living are just some of the things that are celebrated in this charming children’s book! Fergus Barnaby is so excited! Mom, Dad, and Fergus are about to go away on vacation for a few days of fun in the sun. But first…Dad tells him to pack everything he needs, and now Fergus has a problem. Fred has his bucket and shovel, Emily Rose has his swimming goggles, and Teddy has his kite. Fergus lives on the first floor, but his friends—and the toys he let them borrow—are all upstairs. So many stairs, so little time! Will Fergus and Daddy remember to pack everything they need to bring? (Hint: this story ends with a surprise and a big laugh!) Lots of bold illustrations and an enchanting story about friendship and life in the city will make Fergus Barnaby one of your child’s favorites. (Ages 2–5)
From the Reviews:
"The illustrations are skillfully rendered in a splashy, textured watercolor style, with lots of interesting details. The free-spirited illustrations, the detailed urban setting, and Fergus' close connections with his friends are sure to make this a hit with every child looking forward to a trip."
