Hairy Maclary from Donaldson's Dairy by Lynley Dodd

Hairy Maclary from Donaldson's Dairy is a simply fabulous kid's book.  There are several books in the Hairy Maclary series (and videos etc) but the first book is just the best – as is so often the case.

In addition to Hairy Maclary shown above there are other delightful characters:

Hercules Morse as big as a horse

Bottomley Potts covered in spots

Muffin McLay like a bundle of hay

Bitzer Maloney all skinny and bony

Schnitzel von Krumm with a very low tum

Although it is a New Zealand book I'm sure children everywhere would enjoy it.  The only truly New Zealand reference is 'Dairy' which to us means a small convenience store.  We pop up the road to the dairy when we want to buy a paper, some milk or bread etc.
