Hairy Maclary's Hat Tricks




Hairy Maclary can't find anyone to play fetch with him. But when the wind threatens to spoil an important event, the dashing dog finds a way to have his fun AND save the day!

The wind plays a leading role in Hairy Maclary's eighth adventure, setting him off on a desperate, daredevil dash!

It's a blusterous, gusterous,
dusterous day,
and Hairy Maclary
is ready
to play . . .
. . . but everyone says, 'We're too busy today!'

So what can it be that sends Hairy Maclary racing across the park to catch in a flurry of black, and what does he carry ALL THE WAY BACK?

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.'
