Fergal is a very pleasant chap, unless you try and tell him what to do. And then he gets incredibly angry. When Fergal gets angry he loses control of his temper and this leads to somewhat fiery situations. His friends are not impressed with his behaviour and his fiery temper has ruined the football match, burnt delicious cakes and ruined a game. Can this hot headed little dragon learn to keep his cool…
I love Fergal, he is such a brilliant representation of those children who are a little bit hot-headed and who have a fiery temper. After Fergal has upset all of his friends he seeks comfort and advice from his mum and he learns that there is a way to perhaps control his anger. Fergal realises that everyone gets angry but all of his friends have ways of managing their anger. Ideas for dealing with anger that feature in the story include; counting to ten, talking to others, focusing on a moment of calm and having a stretch. The most valuable lesson that Fergal learns is that life is not always fair and that you can not always get what you want.
A lovely read that is beautifully illustrated and is essential reading for all those fiery little dragons.
