Hairy Maclary, SIT!

Hairy Maclary, SIT!

Written and Illustrated by Lynley Dodd

Published by Puffin Children's Books

Not really a dog person but after several recommendations to read the Hairy Maclary books, we thought we'd pick one up from our local library. Hairy Maclary, SIT is the tale of the scruffy little scottie dog's first obedience class. Hairy Maclary and his friends soon run rings round the exasperated class leader, and the bouncy rhyming singsong narrative drives this busy story along perfectly. 
We're aiming to check out Lynley Dodd's other books about the wayward moggy Slinky Malinkie next. 

Charlotte's best bit: Schnitzel von Krum, the sausage dog

Daddy's favourite bit:  STAY!
