"Do not assume..."
1 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I grabbed this product as a sale item assuming, being of the Hairy Maclary line, that it would be of the quality and nature of Lynley Dodd's well known books. However it is nothing of the sort. The package is nice enough in it's presentation. You get 4 small books based around some of the more well known characters of Hairy Maclary but none of the charm found in the writing. Each page has a picture and small, simple sentence relevant to what's seen. Unfortunately it's not even in rhyme.

The product is little more than merchandising at it's worst. At best though, these books may serve as a chew toy for an infant if you are so inclined to allow it. I for one find myself a few dollars out with a product I have no use, need, or desire for. A horrible disappointment.

"A good introduction"
3 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I was a little disappointed that this wasn't the actual stories in miniature.....but they are good none-the-less. It gives us a brief introduction to the world of Lynley Dodd's lovable characters.

Hairy Maclary from Donaldson’s Dairy has lots of friends, including Schnitzel von Krumm (with a very low tum!), cheeky and cheerful Slinky Malinki and adorable pittery-pattery Zachary Quack.

Now you can meet them too in this frolicking, rollicking little library – a perfect simplified introduction to the many adventures of Hairy Maclary and friends and just right for tiny fingers and little hands!

Includes 4 mini board books:
Hairy Maclary
Slinky Malinki
Zachary Quack
Schnitzel Von Krumm
