Competition! Hairy Maclary Touring Stage Show

Mr Toddler and I have always been delighted by the Hairy Maclary books, his buddies Hercules Morse, Bottomley Potts, Muffin McLay, Bitzer Maloney, Schnitzel von Krumm and the terrifying Scarface Claw.  It’s always sounded very Scottish to me, especially Donaldson’s Dairy, but the author’s actually a New Zealander.  Anyway, enough chat, it’s great to hear that the stage show of Hairy Maclary and Friends is touring the UK in July and August and it’s coming to Scotland – Yay!

    Bottomley Potts covered in spots, Hercules Morse as a big as a horse….. how sad I am that my son is past this stage now (even though I’m possibly not!!). We adored these books and knew most of them by heart. The stage show sounds incredible.
