The immensely popular Hairy
Maclary from Donaldson’s Dairy is
now available as an interactive QBook with an AUSLAN sign
language option in addition to the wonderful narration by
David Tennant (Dr Who).
Run your fingers over the text to hear the story and touch
any word to hear and see it spoken and spelt. You can even
colour in pages of the story and record your own voice. Hear
the barking dogs and the ferocious yowl of Scarface Claw,
all part of the interactive experience, giving children and
parents hours of fun. This is not only a marvellous story,
but a superb aid for early learning and literacy
It was thirty years ago that a small black dog stepped out
of the imagination of author and illustrator Lynley Dodd and
onto the pages of a picture book. This book, Hairy
Maclary from Donaldson’s Dairy, is now famous the world
over and the 20 titles in the Hairy Maclary and Friends
series have now sold more than six million copies worldwide.
Hairy Maclary from Donaldson’s Dairy combines
simple narrative storytelling with virtuoso use of rhythm
and rhyme, and Dodd’s gentle but energetic watercolour
illustrations depict characters that are as well loved as
they are mischievous.
