Description

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.

"Children will love looking at the detailed illustrations of each dog, and it's a great conversation starter around different words to describe how each dog looks and might feel" - The Evening Standard
