The whiskers-bristling, high-speed adventure of crotchety Scarface Claw is now available for our youngest fans of Lynley Dodd's Hairy Maclary and Friends
A durable board book edition of crotchety Scarface Claw's latest whiskers-bristling adventure by Lynley Dodd
It is a peaceful morning and Scarface Claw is happily snoozing in a spot in the sun, tail curled around and feet tucked in.
there was a shudder and sway,
the whirr of an engine,
then off and away.
And then off goes the truck down the drive - with Scarface ON TOP! Clinging on to the roof of the truck, Scarface zips along streets with his owner, Tom, oblivious to his rooftop passenger and everyone trying to get his attention as he drives along ... who will come to poor Scarface Claw's rescue?
Inspired by true stories of cat owners driving off without realising their cats are on the roofs of their cars, Scarface Claw's latest adventure will have readers getting just as involved in the story as the bystanders trying to get Tom's attention!
