Hairy Maclary, Shoo is a hilarious rhyming story by Lynley Dodd. 'Stop this shemozzle, this hullabaloo! Scarper, skedaddle, be off with you - shoo!' When Hairy Maclary decides to snoop inside a parked delivery van, he's in for a madcap adventure. After a rattling, roaring ride, and finding himself far from home, he desperately tries to get back to the Dairy - creating havoc and incurring the wrath of shopkeepers, schoolteachers and passers-by along the way. Has Hairy ever caused such mayhem? Thank goodness for Miss Plum, who once again steps in to save the day! Lynley Dodd is an award-winning author/illustrator who lives in New Zealand. She is enormously popular for her rhyming stories of the unforgettable HAIRY MACLARY and his friends. She worked as a teacher before beginning to write her own books in 1974.

One of my son's favourite stories by this author. He often recites parts of it as I'm reading it. He loves the 'shoo' part, giggling every time.

This is another great book in the series,  it is just what you would expect from Hairy Maclary.  Cute characters and a lovely story. Only downside is not as much repetition as the other books but it is still well loved.

Great story for all hairy mcclary fans. As usual the rhyming story is memorable and my little girl knows the shoo part off by heart and loves reciting it.

We are big fans of Hairy Maclary in this house. I love the pace of the rhyming text and then brilliant use of vocabulary: 'shemozzle' 'hullabaloo' just a couple of examples. Hairy Maclary is up to his usual tricks in this story but there is a happy ending as he makes it back to Donaldsons Dairy.

Hairy Mclary is a favourite in our household.  This book in particular as my 2 year old loves joining in with the Shoo section.  I love a book that allows the kids to get involved.

Georgie can't get enough of this series at the moment - it's a good job we have a 15 book set!
She loves the different places that Hairy Maclary goes to in this story as they are places she is familiar with. 
The school is her favourite. She loved repeating "Shoo!"
As always, wonderful rhyme, rhythm and onomatopoeia.
