Zachary Quack is a small but very determined duckling and he sets out to make friends with Hairy Maclary - whether he wants it or not.

Hairy Maclary' and Zachary Quack is a hilarious rhyming story by Lynley Dodd.
Zachary Quack, a small and determined duckling, sets out to play with a rather reluctant Hairy Maclary. A 'cat and mouse' chase follows, with the two characters ending up peacefully snuggled together after Zachary Quack has saved a soggy Hairy Maclary from the river.
Lynley Dodd is an award-winning author/illustrator who lives in New Zealand. She is enormously popular for her rhyming stories of the unforgettable HAIRY MACLARY and his friends. She worked as a teacher before beginning to write her own books in 1974.
