Hairy Maclary's Bone

Publisher: Penguin

Hairy Maclary is lucky enough to be given a big juicy bone by the butcher, Samuel Stone. This does not go unnoticed by all the other dogs who decide to follow Hairy Maclary, or rather his bone on this adventure.

Hairy Maclary travels through town, up the street, through the fence, past the school, and over the wall with his big juicy bone and a pack of followers.

However, one by one they drop off; whether too large to fit through the fence, too dainty to climb over the obstacles or too cumbersome to jump over the wall, Hairy Maclary arrives home with a bone all of his own.

The lyrical rhyme in this book makes it a joy to read aloud and children will enjoy seeing how each dog drops off the trail as Hairy Maclary makes his way home.
