Synopsis

Hairy Maclary's Hat Tricks by Lynley Dodd

Hairy Maclary's Hat Tricks is a hilarious rhyming story by Lynley Dodd. It's a blusterous, gusterous, dusterous day and Hairy Maclary is ready to play. So he trots down to the park where, while enjoying a game of catch, he comes across a windblown wedding party. Poor Grandmother Pugh (a vision in blue) tries to hold on to her hat, but the wind whistles through it and blows it clean away. It's no problem for Hairy Maclary, though! Off he shoots to the rescue, chasing the hat high and low until ...with a swoop and a flurry of black, he caught it and carried it all the way back! Has Hairy ever caused such mayhem? Thank goodness for Miss Plum, who once again steps in to save the day! Lynley Dodd is an award-winning author/illustrator who lives in New Zealand. She is enormously popular for her rhyming stories of the unforgettable Hairy Maclary and his friends. She worked as a teacher before beginning to write her own books in 1974.
