Hairy Maclary from Donaldson's Dairy (Board Book)

Rhymes (and dogs) the way they should be: rumbustious and funny and fantastic! Hairy Maclary is a scruffy Skye Terrier. What does he love? Chasing cats! Scarface Claw is a rough, tough tomcat. What does he love? Chasing dogs! Join Hairy as he takes a stroll around his neighbourhood, hanging out with all the local hounds. (Schnitzel von Crumb, with a very low tum. Bottomly Potts, all covered in spots.) They’re very proud of how brave they are – until a certain cat shows up!

  • A hilarious rhyming favourite – first in a classic series
  • Kids adore Hairy Maclary and his larger-than-life antics
  • This scruffy scallywag is an all-time classic character
