hairymaclary-200Today’s book is a favourite in this house – Hairy Maclary from Donaldson’s Dairy by Lynley Dodd is the book that started the Hairy Maclary series. Earlier in the challenge, I read one of the other books from the series, and more are planned as Mr Z has a pile of them.

This book is a wonderful read, with a great rhythm when reading out load, repetition and rhymes. Each of us has our favourite character – Mr Z’s favourite is Schnitzel Von Krumm, Mr N says he loves Scarface Claw… for me, I love Hairy Maclary.

These books are wonderful for children and parents to read together. As there is a series of books, if you get tired of one of them, there is always another one that will become a fast favourite.

This is also the last book in the bag of books from the Herald Sun newspaper.
