Hairy Maclary is a cute little dog who is going out on an adventure. To be honest, there isn’t much plot to this story, there are a group of dogs that go out for a walk and then they come across a mean cat and run away, THE END.
So now that I have ruined the story for you let me tell you why I love this book. Each dog is this book has a funny fantastic name. It is always a long name with a rhyming description.
“Bottomley Potts covered in spots”
All of the dogs have names like this and it continues in a big rhythm. I remember trying to compete with my sister to see who could remember the most.
“Schnitzel von Krumm
with a very low tum,
all skinny and bony,
like a bundle of hay,
covered in spots,
as big as a horse
and Hairy Maclary
from Donaldson’s Dairy”
A book with cute pets with cute names, a fun rhythm and of course rhyme, how could you not love it?! Just give it a shot okay! It is like Alligator Pie, if I can’t get some, I think I’m gonna die! Haha, sorry, I had to! They are so similar and so fun!
