Hairy Maclary from Donaldson's Dairy

Hairy MacLary from Donaldson’s Dairy is the cheekiest, messiest, hairiest mutt in town. But in rough, tough tomcat Scarface Claw, has he finally met his match? Join Hairy Maclary as he takes a stroll around the neighbourhood, meeting all the local hounds (Schnitzel von Crumb, with a very low tum; Bottomly Potts, all covered in spots) ... before they tangle with horrible Scarface Claw, who scares the dogs away! Told in bouncing, rumbustious rhyme, this hilarious favourite introduces a classic character: scallywag Hairy Maclary, the scruffy Skye Terrier!
