in need of a snooze.
What place do they go to?
Which spot do they choose?
After some frolicsome fun, Hairy and his gang are ready for a nap. But where will they choose to sleep? Horatio Morse, Barnaby Potts, Schnitzel von Krumm and all the rest of Hairy Maclary’s friends each have their favourite spot to sleep when it’s time for a nap. And in this superb touch-and-feel book young readers will delight in exploring them.
When we were in New Zealand last year, my family decided they would go to Hobbiton but I chose to find the sculpture of Hairy Maclary and friends in Tauranga instead. Despite the pouring rain, I was determined to pay my respects to this favourite creature of my childhood and I was not disappointed.
No child should go through childhood without meeting this wonderful little dog and his mates. They just bring such joy and this new tale is the perfect introduction.
