This is a work of pure genius. It is a great favourite among all my family and friends. Combining a scintilating plot with Dodd's clear mastery of poetic technique makes for an unforgettable read. The parrot and hairy dog are both hilarious. I would recommend this masterpiece to anyone!

This is the 1991 re-issue of the original book in paperback with card covers. The books runs to a total of 32 pages.

I'm collecting the Lynley Dodd series of 'Hairy Maclary' for my grandson. He loves them. The illustrations are gorgeous, really bright, funky colours than draw younger children straight in. For me though it's more about the rhyming story. I love reading these books at bedtime they're ideal. He nods his head up and down in time to the rhyme and it's so cute. Each of the books in the series have a story that's simple yet deep enough they hold his interest. He's only two and a bit but he learns the words really fast and can often repeat them with me even when he's not looking at the pictures. Great characters and a perfect read for small children (and grandparents!).

The Hairy Maclarey books have it all, beautiful illustrations, funny stories which captivate small children, and a rhythm to the verse which makes them a joy for parents to read too. This story builds the chaos of a group of animals running amok at the vets beautifully, ending with a twist which brings you right back to the beginning again. Buy one and you will find yourself coming back for the others!

Every time we ever have to take the cat or dog to the vet for a vaccine my son always volunteers to come along BECAUSE OF THIS BOOK! He would like nothing more than the mayhem depicted here to happen in real life: a bowlful of mice spilling out onto the floor, four budgies flying to the ceiling being chased by four kittens, a goat in a thundering rage and even the poor vet tripping over a lead. Of course it never happens at our vet's but then he hasn't got Hairy Maclary as a customer. Another inspired instalment in the Hairy Maclary series, thank you Lynley Dodd.
