Snooze with Hairy Maclary: A Touch and Feel Book, by Lynley Dodd

We are great fans of Hairy Maclary and his motley gang in my household. So a new edition to the fold, even if, as a touch and feel version, it’s too young now for my two year old, was eagerly viewed. She knows all the characters by heart.

In Snooze with Hairy Maclary Dame Lynley Dodd’s classic story is simplified into an attractive textured touch and feel book. The story is simple: our favourite band of characters are tired – where will they take a snooze?

When my daughter was a baby one of her favourite books was the Hairy Maclary and Friends: A Touch and Feel Book, so it’s nice to see another addition to the range.

We are not alone in our love for Hairy Maclary. Ever since Hairy Maclary first trotted out of the gate and off for a walk, that mischievous mutt has been adored by millions of children and adults all over the world.

Snooze with Hairy Maclary would make a great present for a new baby.
