Hairy Maclary's Caterwaul Caper - Lynley Dodd 

Hairy Maclary's Caterwaul Capers - © Lynley Dodd
I don't know who loves the books by Lynley Dodd more my children or I ! Lynley Dodd writes with the most beautiful rhythmical alliteration. If you can find any of her books at the library or bookshop grab them they are worth their weight in gold. Her illustrations are marvelously mischievous being  closely observed from life and enjoyed by young and old alike. The pictures and words combine to tell the story, each picture contains vital information contributing to the story and invites exploration by the reader.
