Hairy Maclary From Donaldson's Dairy: 08/26/07

Mrs. McTats and the Houseful of Cats

Judy and Charlie brought back a small pile of adorable children's book from their recent trip abroad. Hairy Maclary from Donaldson's Dairy is one of those books.

Hairy Maclary is a dog who likes to go on walks about town. He takes along his canine friends from around the village. The story is told in rhyme and is quite a tongue twister in parts. The story also ends in a way that ties this book together with another of the ones Sean was given: Scarface Claw.

The book has joyful illustrations. Each dog is a cute and individual character. They all look very happy but still are very much dogs.

I think Scarface Claw is the one we have - given to dudelet by a neighbour who was worried he'd been upset by an incident of her cat beating up our cat. The cat in the book is great! Just like our aging male in troublemaking prime."
