Review by Publishers Weekly Reviews

The first title, published in New Zealand in 1983 and making its U.S. debut, introduces the diminutive black dog and a host of canine pals in a cumulative text. They take the town until a giant tomcat sends them all homeward. In the second book (published in 1984), the same motley crew follows the hero in hopes of taking his bone but, one by one, Hairy outmaneuvers them. Ages 2-5. (Oct.)

Review by Publisher Summary 2

With cumulative rhymes and sunny ink and watercolor illustrations, this international favorite chronicles the escapades of our hero Hairy and his crew of five kooky canines. In this introductory book in the HAIRY MACLARY series, all the pooches-from big-as-a-horse Hercules Morse to Schnitzel von Krumm with the very low tum-meet their feline match.• Lynley Dodd'­s books have sold over 2 million copies worldwide.
