5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic!! 1 Dec 2006
Format:Board book
This book is an absolute must for every child.....and parent for that matter.

I first read Hairy Maclary to my little brother over 15 years ago and have been given it as a gift for my 1 year old. She thinks that it is fab and loves Scarface Claw - The toughest Tom in Town. The rythmn of the book is great and I have to agree with everyone else who says that it is perfect for bedtime.

1.0 out of 5 stars Story incomplete 21 Nov 2011
By JJB
Format:Board book
Warning: Don't buy this board book version of this wonderful Hairy Maclary rhyming story - it is incomplete so the rhyme finishes in mid air. There are two lines (and two illustrations) missing at the end. The hard back collection of Hairy Mclary stories is a good buy or Waterstones do an exclusive three story collection for 7.99.

Format:Board book
Lynley Dodd is a writer/illustrator from New Zealand who has been publishing for some time, but her Hairy Maclary books have had the most success. "Hairy Maclary from Donaldson's Dairy" is a dear little black dog who gets into all sorts of trouble. In this story he goes out for a walk and meets up with lots of other dogs (as he meets each one, their name is added to the list: Schnitzel von Crumb - with a very low tum, Bottomly Potts - all covered in spots, ... with Hairy Maclary from Donaldson's Dairy) Finally (to their horror) they all come across Scarface Claw: the roughest, toughest tomcat in town.
It's a lot of fun, and any parent or children's librarian will soon have the whole thing memorised from constant reading.

My children and I love Hairy Maclary books, in fact I think we have them all, so I decided to buy this for someone as a present. Unfortunately, it doesn't explain in the description that this is a pocket sized book. Admittedly, if you look at the book dimensions further down you'll see it's very small, but I've never thought of looking at this when buying a book online (I will now!). For the cost of the book it's not worth the hassle of returning. The story is fabulous though, shame the book is too small to appreciate the pictures.

I started reading Hairy Maclary to my son when he was 6 months old. He is now 3 and it is still a firm favourite - a great achievement I think!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent rhyming book for kids 26 Aug 1999
By A Customer
Format:Hardcover
My 5 year old loved this book and within a few days could almost recite it from cover to cover as we read it so much. Then my 2 year old started saying some of the rhyming words as well - lovely book for kids. I have now got to go and by the others in the series!

4.0 out of 5 stars Like the characters 19 Sep 2013

Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Quite bulky due to the 'woof'ing part at the back of the book, but a nice story from Linley Dodd with funny characters.

Our 18 month daughter has loved this book since she was 6 months old! Hairy Maclary collects all of his dog friends together on his travels, only to be scared witless at the end by the dreaded cat 'Scarface Claw'. It always raises a smile.

2.0 out of 5 stars Ok but not the best of the series
Nice book, but our son is easily bored by the repetition of the names of the dogs, it would have been better to have had a story all the way through.
