I expected the books to rhyme or have a story but they are just statements about each character! Wouldn't have bought them if I'd had a chance to see inside them first.
Here's an example: "Schnitzel Von Krumm can caper in cirles, whimper and howl, ride on a skateboard, scramble up trees, and squeeze into his basket" That takes up 5 pages.

We bought Hairy Maclary for my daughter and she loved the flow and rhythm so I bought this little library to add to our bedtime collection. Should have read the reviews first. There is no flow, so she doesn't engage in the stories at all. Perfect size for chew toys which is all they are really useful for.

The books are nice enough but I hadn't realised they were only tiny little books and more suitable for a younger baby - there is hardly any 'story', just pictures.

Lovely little books, a good accompaniment to the full length books. Not really actual stories but my one year old son seems to like them so that's all that matters!

I thought i'd got a really good deal when i ordered these books for use in some reading research i am doing. However, when they arrived it was apparent that they were not what i thought i had ordered! Very small at 3 inches square! Not good for reading to a class of children. On top of this, they are not the full stories with just a line on each page they tell no tale and are not what i expected at all.

We were disappointed in this set, it doesn't have the same impact the hairy maclary stories have, we felt it was aimed at a younger age than the bigger books in the series.

Even better if you have the original books, as these little ones simply quote verses from the main ones (not in rhyme) which my 22m old boy knows word by word. The Schnitzel Von Krumm one is his favourite and when we get to page 2 he howls like the dog! So funny.

Bought as an untroduction to the other characters as we already have Slinky Malinki. I was a little disappointed that they didn't offer enough reading material, like them on an adventure but good 4 younger ones, my 2 1/2 year old was looking 4 more.
