Hairy Maclary from Donaldson’s Dairy
This is the story of the scruffy dog Hairy Maclary, who went off for a walk with a few of his friends, and got a nasty surprise. It is told in rhyme, using repetition to make it more accessible to young children.
Hairy Maclary from Donaldson’s Dairy is the hilarious rhyming classic by Lynley Dodd.
Hairy Maclary goes off for a walk in town, followed by doggish friends of all shapes and sizes. One by one they join Hairy Maclary until they meet SCARFACE CLAW! Scarface Claw is the toughest Tom in town, and causes all the others to run for home. The brilliant cumulative rhyme and terrific pictures of this story has turned it into a classic – and it is still one of the most popular picture books today.
