5.0 out of 5 stars Delightful Read, 28 Mar 2014
This book was purchased at the request of my six year old son who had discovered the work of Lynley Dodd at school. I wish I had also discovered this author sooner! The stories (of which there are five) are a joy to read. The rhythm and pace makes them perfect for reading aloud and the characters and story lines are genuinely amusing. I particularly appreciate having five stories all together within this sturdy hardback book.

This has proven to be a really worthy addition to my kitchen, helping to keep my plastic carrier bags in order. It is a very simple idea but the quality of the holder is excellent. It is very sturdy and robust and looks surprisingly stylish too. I keep mine out of the way in a cupboard but it looks good enough to have out on display if preferred.

My six year old son loves the Hairy Maclary series of stories so I thought this would be a big hit. Unfortunately, he finds David Tennant's very strong Scottish accent tricky to understand as he pronounces words slightly differently. He also finds the pace of the reading far too quick which means that he is unable to quick track of the audio version with his own paper copy. This was a disappointment overall.
