In this book, Hairy McCleary is joined by a slew of other dogs (some have their own books) as they explore down the street. But a terrible cat gets in the way of their doggy behavior.
The book is nicely illustrated with full-page illustrations. The verse follows patterned rhymes and the list of dogs is repeated each time a new one joins up. The repetition and simple plot make it good for younger readers and it sets the stage for many other adventures. All in all it is like of combination of BISCUIT (Alyssa Satin Capucilli) with its repetitiveness and ANGUS AND THE DUCKS (Marjorie Flack) with its resolution of curiosity.
I have been reading them to kids for 15 years and now have a son of my own and he already has the entire collection of Hairy Maclary related books (14 and Counting....)
This is one of my all time favourite books. Every child I have read or given these to has become addicted to that scruffy black dog. His is an everyday New Zealand kind of life. The illustrations are typical NZ scenery, great for those who have been there and remember fondly the backdrop to these great tales.
Lynley Dodd has also written several other great kids books, so check her out on the web. The other reviews tell you how great the book is, I wanted to let you know that if you love this book there are many more to discover.
scruffy dog. He hangs out with a group of friends who walk downtown undisturbed until they meet the aggressive tomcat "Scarface Claw the toughest tom in town" and run home for safety and security.
This is described in wonderful marching rhyme using words and names that sing off the tongue. Reading this story aloud is an upbeat experience for both the adult reader and the child who will quickly join in, repeating the list of names.
Much of the magic for children comes from the clever artwork which picks up the characteristics of the different breeds. They will look for and recognize "Bottomley Potts all covered in spots' and "Schnitzel von Krumm with a very low tum" in their own world. And of course in communities where they have opportunities, dogs do make canine friends and socialize in groups irrespective of size and breed.
I help out in a small community library where "Hairy Maclary from Donaldson's Dairy" is one of the well thumbed, always out, books.
I have bought this book for grandchildren who live on the other side of the Pacific confident that the universal appeal of the characters and the rhythmic text will please and delight both the recipients and their parents
