Hairy Maclary’s showbusiness, Lynley Dodd
Hairy Maclary’s Showbusiness, By Lynley Dodd, is a rhyming book for younger children, but all children will enjoy. Both genders will love this book, as the main character is a boy. This book is about a dog that is tied to a tree, he escaped the tree and entered the annual cat show. All and every cat were terrified of Hairy Maclary. Hairy Maclary was chased by all the hosts; finally Miss Plum caught him. It was a big mess after that chase! Hairy Maclary is very scruffy, therefore, he won the scruffiest cat prize. I would recommend reading this book because it has lots of catchy rhymes, this made it enjoyable to read. I wanted to keep reading the book because… What would the cats do to Hairy Maclary? I learnt that even if you’re not meant to get the prize, you can still have a chance; everyone has a chance. It made me feel overjoyed because Lynley Dodd is a great author, and this is another great book wrote by her. Other children would enjoy reading this book because it will teach them a lot. All Lynley Dodd’s books have lots and lots of repetition and rhymes, making her books exciting to read.
