Jumpstart | Hairy MaClary from Donaldson’s Dairy – Lynlee Dodd


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,
Bitzer Maloney
all skinny and bony,
Muffin McClay
like a bundle of hay,
Bottomley Potts
covered in spots,
Hercules Morse
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!
