"Brilliant classics, every one"

Purchased on Mighty Ape

Apart from wishing there were more of Lynley Dodd's tales like Slinky Malinky included in this Treasury – this book is a gorgeous collection of her best work and stunning illustration along with the CD read-along. It will be a keepsake for years to come and definitely have a place in my children's Me­mory Boxes.

Description

Out of the gate and off for a walk went Hairy Maclary from Donaldson's Dairy …Ever since Hairy Maclary from Donaldson's Dairy first trotted out of the gate with his shaggy face, rascally eyes and hilarious rhyming name, he has been adored by millions of children and adults all over the world. Lynley Dodd's ten classic tales with Hairy Maclary in the starring role have been collected into one very special hardback volume. Hairy Maclary and Friends Treasury: The complete adventures of Hairy Maclary also includes a CD of the stories, read by Kyle Pryor. Each tale is introduced by Lynley Dodd herself, who shares the hilarious real-life episodes that for her sparked off each new rollicking, frolicking Hairy Maclary adventure.

The complete collection of Hairy Maclary stories is as follows: Hairy Maclary from Donaldson's Dairy; Hairy Maclary's Bone; Hairy Maclary Scattercat; Hairy Maclary's Caterwaul Caper; Hairy Maclary's Rumpus at the Vet; Hairy Maclary's Show­business; Hairy Maclary, Sit; Hairy Maclary and Zachary Quack; Hairy Maclary's Hat Tricks; Hairy Maclary, Shoo.

Author Biography

Lynley Dodd graduated from the Elam School of Art in Auckland with a diploma in Fine Arts, majoring in sculpture. She went on to teach art before taking a break to start a family. She began to work as a freelance illustrator and collaborated with author Eve Sutton on My Cat Likes To Hide in Boxes. There was no looking back as Lynley went on to write and illustrate her own books for children. Exuberant artwork and bouncy rhymes come together perfectly in books like Slinky Malinki and Hairy Maclary from Donaldson's Dairy. As well as being a visual delight, these are some of the most rewarding books for children and adults to read out loud. It comes as no surprise that, as a child, she adored Dr Seuss because of his ‘crazy sounds and the fact that he took such liberties with the English language.’ Other favourite authors included A A Milne and the fairy tales of The Grimm Brothers and Hans Christian Andersen. Today, Lynley is a big fan of Quentin Blake ‘because of his humour and very clever art work.’
