A playful look-and-find story about creatures and their homes, from Lynley Dodd, creator of Hairy Maclary and Friends

Children will love searching for the creatures camouflaged in the jungle in this classic rhyming story from beloved author Lynley Dodd.


Deep in the jungle,
cool and green,
find me a tiger,
long and lean.

See if you can spot a tiger in the jungle, a lizard in the desert, a crocodile in the river, or any of the other animals hiding in these pages. You might even recognise a sneaky black cat!

About the Author

Lynley Dodd

Lynley Dodd graduated from the Elam School of Art in Auckland with a diploma in Fine Arts, majoring in sculpture. She went on to teach art before taking a break to start a family. She began to work as a freelance illustrator and collaborated with author Eve Sutton on My Cat Likes To Hide in Boxes. There was no looking back as Lynley went on to write and illustrate her own books for children. Exuberant artwork and bouncy rhymes come together perfectly in books like Slinky Malinki and Hairy Maclary from Donaldson's Dairy. As well as being a visual delight, these are some of the most rewarding books for children and adults to read out loud. It comes as no surprise that, as a child, she adored Dr Seuss because of his 'crazy sounds and the fact that he took such liberties with the English language.' Other favourite authors included A A Milne and the fairy tales of The Grimm Brothers and Hans Christian Andersen. Today, Lynley is a big fan of Quentin Blake 'because of his humour and very clever art work.'
