I had been thinking for a while that I needed some Hairy Maclary in my life – I’ve always loved this series, by one of New Zealand’s best known children’s authors! As I was reading this in a cafe in Reefton, I don’t have a copy to show the beautiful artwork & can’t give examples of Dodd’s economical yet descriptive language. Young children never tire of these books.
But I do have a picture of the cover!
This tale is about the crafty Hairy McLary receiving a bone from the local butcher – which he doesn’t want to share with his friends!
