Hairy Maclary is a triumph
on 19 January 2005
My son has had all the Hairy Maclary books since he was a baby and continues to adore them now he is a self-professed "big boy" (aged 2 3/4). I bought him the tape version yesterday and he loved it from first hearing - it even took over from the dread Barney CD he normally wants to listen to at night. This is his first experience of audio cassettes and it was a great start.
If you are familiar with the Hairy Maclary series you will not need to be told how wonderful the language, reading rhythms and situations are; if you are not, well give this enchanting tape a try and then go out and purchase the books. They really are worth it.
I can only hope that now the Hairy Maclary books are out, some of the Slinky Malinki series will follow them on to cassette.
If I have one criticism it is the brevity - 10 minutes per side is very short indeed.
