Happy birthday to our favourite dog from Donaldson’s Dairy!

Join Auckland Libraries in celebrating the 30th anniversary of the publication of Lynley Dodd’s iconic story Hairy Maclary from Donaldson’s Dairy.

Libraries all over Auckland will be holding storytimes to mark this occasion so make sure you contact your local library to find out when and where you can listen to the tales of Hairy Maclary and his furry friends.

Auckland Libraries will also be at The Edge on 16 – 17 July in the lead-up to the opening of the Hairy Maclary and friends show. Come down and hear one of his adventures read aloud. 


About backyardbooks

This blog is a kind of electronic storage locker for ideas and quotes that inform my research... literary research into fiction for young adults (with a special focus on New Zealand fiction). Kiwis are producing amazing literature for younger readers, but it isn't getting the academic appreciation it deserves. I hope readers of this blog can make use of the material I gather and share by way of promoting our fiction. Cheers!
