Book 44 - Hairy Maclary #100daysofbooks (verdict: a classic)

Day 44 and the classic, Hairy Maclary. It's not a complicated story - a bunch of dogs go for a walk, get a fright and run home. What makes it a story is the rhyming escalation as each dog is added to the procession. The rhymes are easy to read and the pictures are both simple and expressive. Of course, now there's many more adventures of Hairy Maclary and his friends. We'll read Slinky Malinki (sp?) another day - a cunning cat might be more my thing, but this is still a classic with a lot of appeal.

Master A's verdict: Enjoyed the rhyme and VERY keen to eat the board book. I can see these will get chewed corners. It's ok with me ... I believe good books should be destroyed with love.
