Hairy Maclary – #AtoZfavbooks May Challenge – Day 8

Hairy MaclaryHairy Maclary by Lynley Dodd …

… Day 3 May #AtoZfavbooks challenge.

Hairy Maclary from Donaldson’s Dairy is the first book in a series of twelve books by Lynley Dodd about this lovable dog and his friends whose names are as gorgeous as their fantastic illustrations.

“Schnitzel von Krumm with a very low tum, 
Bitzer Maloney all skinny and bony,
Muffin McClay like a bundle of hay,
Bottomley Potts covered in spots,
Hercules Morse as big as a horse
and Hairy Maclary from Donaldson’s Dairy”

My grandson is scared of dogs and I hoped showing these lovable doggy characters would take away some of that fear. Not sure this strategy was successful but we had fun reading the lovely rhyming text.
