The book is written very cleverly. My dad read it to my siblings and I almost every night. I was so excited to receive the book and start reading it with my kids. They have caught on to the patterns and now like to "read" it to me.
I love the rhymes and the illustrations. I have been reading this book for the past 5 years to grandchildren. They all fall in love with Hairy and his friends...even Scarface Claw! Please don't let this book go out of print. Would also recommend Hairy Maclary and friends but could not find it listed.
This is a wonderful book for children who are learning to read! It has fun pictures and good rhythm to it. This was the first book I read by myself (I memorized it!). I also recommend the other Hairy Maclary books. I still have my copies from almost 20 years ago!
