Hairy Maclary felt mischievous and mad. He was not in the mood for the Kennel Club's Obedience Class. Something was happening down in the park;such a yapcould be heard,such a blusterous bark. Hairy Maclary causes trouble again when he is simply not in the mood for the Kennel Club's Obedience Class. He feels mischievous and mad and not only does he scamper away but all his friends - Bottomley Potts, Muffin McLay, Hercules Morse, Schnitzel von Krumm and the rest follow 'Galloping here, galloping there, rollicking, frolicking everywhere'!
Dodd's pictures are good, but the rhyming verse is even better - delightful to read aloud and soon learned by heart Independent
