In this latest picture book in her Hairy Maclary and Friends series, Lynley Dodd captures the essence of cat behaviour with her trademark rhythm and rhyme as Slinky Malinki rouses the family before dawn - ("He tipped over lamps and he sat on their heads, until he had pestered them out of their beds!") - and then promptly goes back to sleep . . .
Run your fingers over the text to hear the story and touch any word to hear and see it spoken and spelt. You can even colour in pages of the story and record your own voice. Hear the barking dogs and the ferocious yowl of Scarface Claw, all part of the interactive experience, giving children and parents’ hours of fun. This is not only a marvellous story, but a superb aid for early learning and literacy development.
It was thirty years ago that a small black dog stepped out of the imagination of author and illustrator Lynley Dodd and onto the pages of a picture book. This book, Hairy Maclary from Donaldson’s Dairy, is now famous the world over and the 20 titles in the Hairy Maclary and friends series have now sold more than six million copies worldwide.
