We love this book (0/0 people found this helpful)

This is our favourite of all the excellent Hairy Maclary books - my 2 year old loves it and loves to make all the different barking sounds of the dogs. Highly recommended - a really fun book to read for both parents and children alike.

5/5 stars

brilliant for reading out loud (0/0 people found this helpful)

My 21 month old daughter loves this book, especially all the different dog woofs and noises which make her laugh out loud and scream with joy. I don't know how many times we have had to read it to her!

5/5 stars

Fab intro to a fab series of books (0/0 people found this helpful)

Hairy Maclary from Donaldson's Dairy is the ideal starter book to this fab series. Its pretty basic compared to some of the later offerings and introduces us to a lot of the characters with its charming rhyming prose. Characters such as "Bottomley Potts, covered in spots" (a dalmation) and "Schnitzel Von-Krumm with the very low tum" (a dachund)(excuse the spelling!). And how could we forget "Scarface Claw" - the toughest tom cat in town, whom my 3 year old is currently totally potty about to the point that he's demanded more books featuring Scarface Claw for Christmas (and its only October). Thankfully he won't be disappointed as there are other books in the series featuring this tough tom cat, including a book dedicated to Scarface Claw himself! Overall I think Hairy Maclary is a brilliant read which will be enjoyed night after night by child AND parent. Some books can become monotonous to read over and over but I haven't yet tired of reading this one to my son who always waits in anticipation until Scarface Claw jumps out of the shadows. He enjoys joining with with the loud MEEEEOOOOOOOOOOOOW and also enjoys reciting the final "to bed" at the end. I can't rate this book highly enough. Go buy it ... NOW!

Reading for fun (0/0 people found this helpful)

This story, along with most of the other Lynley Dodd books is excellent to read to 2-6 year olds. It is funny and children enjoy the rhymes and noises.Its a great way to help your children to grow to love books.

5/5 stars

A dog lovers special ! (0/0 people found this helpful)

As a parent I love seeing the great joy my 6 year old gets from reading this book. Her love of dogs knows no bounds and this book allows her to see a whole range of different dogs. As an educator I love the range of descriptive words and realise what merit the book has when I hear my 3 year old use the word 'cacophony'.
