We all love Hairy Maclary from Donaldson Dairy

Lynley Dodd's Hairy Maclary from Donaldson's Dairy are just wonderful children's books - the twins love them! They love Hairy the scruffy wily black terrier, Hercules Morse as big as a horse, Bottomly Potts covered in spots, bitzer Maloney all skinny and bony, Muffin McLay like a bundle of hay and of course Noodle the poodle has a special resonance for us.

They love visiting Hairy's rural idyll.

Occassionally on a weekend in the afternoon when they are tired and so am I I let them watch a dvd while I fetch dinner and they calm down a bit. My preferred viewing (and theirs too quite often) is Hairy - the dvds are basically the same as the books and in bite sized portions are great entertainers for the brats. Stella certainly watches them too but I don't think I can really say she loves them as the twins do - here are some pics:

PS Scarface Claw the toughest Tom in town and the mischievious Slinki Malinki should satisfy the cat lover in you too.
