Forty years ago, a scruffy and mischievous pooch emerged from a dairy, captivating kids across Aotearoa and the world. Since then, Dame Lynley Dodd has charted the adventures of Hairy Maclary, Slinky Malinki, Zachary Quack and Stickybeak Syd, doing double duty as both writer and illustrator.
Celebrating this glorious fortieth anniversary, Lynley reflects on her legacy, the happy accident that led to Hairy Maclary’s creation and how in a picture book, every word matters.
