Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 2-Hairy's back, this time leading Zachary Quack through garden and woods for a merry game of hide-and-seek, with each posture a picture of bliss. If the sight of Hairy's black fur askew as he plunges into the river does not get a chuckle, prepare at least for unabashed sighs at the end when dog and duck cuddle for a nap. Delicate lines and an amazing range of shades dress up the rhyming text, and amusing onomatopoeia captures the duck's frolic.-Gay Lynn Van Vleck, Henrico County Library, Glen Allen, VA

On a lazy day Hairy just wants to lie in the shade and rest. But around the corner comes the peppy and playful Zachary Quack, a small duckling. Hairy Maclary tries to run and hide but the little duck is always close behind no matter where Hairy Maclary goes.

But when Hairy Maclary tries to escape via water he runs into a little trouble. It is then that Hairy Maclary learns that Zachary is more than a simple annoyance. The wet and bedraggled Hairy Maclary slinks off and finally the book ends in a way that makes this the most adorable and endearing of the Hairy Maclary books.

Once again Lynley Dodd combines lyrical verse with adorable characters to come up with a book kids love. Having read quite a few of these book I am impressed with the author's use of language. The language has not been simplified or dumbed down but encourages the growth of vocabulary. Definitely good books to for reading to children or have them read to you.

Hairy MacLary is at it again. This time he repeatedly attempts to escape and hide from a pesky duckling until Hairy gets in trouble and is rescued by his new friend. Illustrations are wonderful. My daughter owns all of Ms. Dodds books. They are great.

I have three kids under five, and all three LOVE Harry Maclary, and this book in particular. It is an adorable story that is very well told. The rhymes aren't over the top, but make the book memorable. My oldest practically has the book memorized, and "reads" to the other two. I can't recommend this book highly enough.

If you are not familiar with Hairy Maclary, please check out this book (or one of his other adventures). They are very sweet stories, easy to read to a small child, with beautiful illustrations. The rhymes are always great and kids love the getting to know the animals that appear (and reappear) in all of Hairy Maclary's adventures. Absolutely one of our favorites kids' books ever.

There is something very sweet and fun to Dodd's writing. When I read his books aloud to my children, I must apply my best Aussie accent (which isn't very good) just for effect. It seems the correct thing to do. We adore all of his stories!

My daughter prefers Hairy Maclary's Bone, but this is one of my favorites to read to her. I'm surprised Lynley Dodd is not more known in the US, and I hope more parents discover her delightful books. I am doing my best to spread the word. Wonderful rhythm and rhyme ensure that you won't silently groan in dismay when your child asks you to read this over and over again. All the Hairy Maclary and Slinky Malinky stories are great (though there are a few that are not as favored as the others).
