Eventually Hairy Maclary realises that he can't shake off Zachary Quack and they curl up together for a doze in the sun!

About the Author

Lynley Dodd is an award-winning author/illustrator enormously popular for her rhyming stories of the memorable Hairy Maclary, Schnitzel Von Krumm - and enemies! She worked as a teacher before beginning to write her own books in 1974. Lynley lives in New Zealand.


PreS-Gr 2-Hairy's back, this time leading Zachary Quack through garden and woods for a merry game of hide-and-seek, with each posture a picture of bliss. If the sight of Hairy's black fur askew as he plunges into the river does not get a chuckle, prepare at least for unabashed sighs at the end when dog and duck cuddle for a nap. Delicate lines and an amazing range of shades dress up the rhyming text, and amusing onomatopoeia captures the duck's frolic.-Gay Lynn Van Vleck, Henrico County Library, Glen Allen, VA Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.

A duckling convinces the pooch hero to play. "The pictures are amiably animated and suitably silly, but watch those wonderful waggish words," wrote PW of the earlier Hairy Maclary books. Ages 2-5. (Apr.) Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

Lisa Ross on
A great rhyming story for children. Hairy Maclary is up to his old tricks but this time meets his match Zachary Quack a little yellow duck. I don’t know who loves it more my 6 months old son or me.
Sian McEwen on
Lynley dodds is great! This is a new childrens book which has already become both a favourite and a classic, and Lynley Dodd keeps writing these wonderful rhyming stories as well. Hariy McLary and Zachary Quack is one to own and place on the keeper shelves for your children and grandchildren. Wonderfully illustrated too.

Lynley Dodds books are fantastic, these were my favourite child hood story books, Hairy McClary from donaldson dairy, schnitzel von crumb with the very low tum, and especially scar face claw! he was definately the best though! these books are absolutely great any child should read them!
Matthew Bach on
Dodd composes another quaint and joyful book that traces the playful story of Hairy evading his pittery pattery friend Zachary Quack. The story expounds friendship and playfulness in rhyme and has some cute pictures to follow. Little kids enjoy the story of the book and it catches their attention just right one each page with each line and picture. A good little book to get as a gift for families with little ones...
Randall Lamb on
I really liked this hairy MacLary book. Only Hairy makes an appearance with an adoreable little Duck. The duck annoys Hairy all day by following him everywhere he goes til the end when Hairy gets stuck in the water and Zachary Quack saves him, making them friends. Very sweet and highly recommended. My favorite.
Caritta Court on
This is another great Hairy Maclary book, though I should warn you that it only has Hairy out of the doggy friends, so if your child is in love with schnitzel, buy another one! It is a lovely tale about friendship and uses repitition which is such a trade mark of Lynley Dodd and the usual made up phrases that are so catchy.
