We loved Hairy Maclary from Donaldson's Dairy so we're excited to read this one too. 
It is an endearing story of how Hairy Maclary is trying to rest on a warm day but an annoying little duck wants to play with him. Ultimately he ends up in the river and needs rescuing. 
The underlying message is that we never can tell who we may be friends with and we need to approach everyone with an open mind.
My son, especially, loves the repeated phrases for how Zachary Quack moves.

Another favourite series...this one featuring some of our favourite lines...”pittery pattery, skittery scattery, ZIP..” “who wanted to frolic and footle and play... but Hairy Maclary skedaddled away.”

Such a wonderful rhyme to read aloud...with beautiful illustrations.

Zachary Quack wants to be friends with Hairy Maclary but he seems to find that pittering, pattering a little tiresome!  Will they make friends...or will Hairy skeddadle again....?

Perfect for everyone!!

One of the best Hairy Maclary books. The little duck won't leave Hairy alone, all he wants to do is sleep in the shade. A lovely rhyming text and fun pictures of Hairy trying to hide. The cute little duckling made this one a popular with my daughter.

These are lovely stories to read to young children as they have a fun rhyming style and lots of repetition, so great for little ones to join in the fun. The stories are always funny too, and this one is no exception, with poor Hairy Maclary being chased around relentlessly by the annoying Zachary Quack, who wants to play while Hairy just wants to doze in the sun. But there is a happy ending... !
