Hairy Maclary, Sit is a hilarious rhyming story by Lynley Dodd. Hairy Maclary causes trouble again when he is simply not in the mood for the Kennel Club's Obedience Class. He feels mischievous and mad and not only does he scamper away but all his friends - Bottomley Potts, Muffin McLay, Hercules Morse, Schnitzel von Krumm and the rest follow "Galloping here, galloping there, rollicking, frolicking everywhere"! 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. Read all the Hairy Maclary and Friends books by Lynley Dodd!

We love the Hairy Maclary Books. This is another great one where all the dogs are causing trouble in an obedience class. This made us laugh as we could imagine our dog been a pain in such a class. Highly recommended.

You can never go wrong with a Hairy Maclary book and many of them we know off by heart.    This book was great fun. The dogs are at an obedience class but as usual everything goes wrong.  My son loved the chair crashing over and all the dogs running with their leads flying behind them.    The vocabulary that Lynley Dodd uses is fantastic 'blusterous', 'frolicking' 'husky' to show just a few. The rhyme makes the book easy to read while marking the tempo of what is happening. The pictures are clear and interesting taken from the dogs perspective. You only ever see the people's legs.    A real hit in this house!

Another fantastic and funny book by Lynley Dodd. 
I think her books are so good because they are all so relatable - whether that be to your own pets or your children! I can just imagine the frustration of the dog trainer!

The rhyme and plot here are fun, well-tempo'd and pitched well to young children's humour. The issue, yet again (like in so many books...) is that all the characters are "he". We do see a few women's legs in the illustrations, but that's it for female/girl representation. For a more extensive run-down of why this is an actual issue and more than just annoying you can see my "Dear Zoo" review...

Half the dogs out there are female, (as are half our children) let's ask for that representation as a first, simple step. Please.
