Read full description of the books:
Lynley Dodd is, as far as I'm concerned, a childhood hero. A genius of literary magic.
Her stories, and illustrations, are just the stuff a childhood should be full of! The stories are not only simple stories that most kids can - and will - relate to, but they are written in a delightful manner that makes them a joy to read, and to hear. I used to feel like the Pied Piper when I sat down to start reading a Lynley Dodd book to my kids at our local play-centre, because I would soon have a throng of eager children all sitting transfixed. Whether they knew the interesting words Lynley uses they would all be hanging on the suspense and anticipation of the tale. From which dog was next, which cat was next ... or all jumping at Scarface Claw - the toughest tom in town! The stories absolutely delight, entrance and enthral each and every child I have read them to - and that's a lot. These books are read so often that they are learned, and this helps teach word association with pictures (which are just as delightful as the words), my children and others learned interesting language that they may not otherwise come across. The words all have a musical verse to them which enhances the flow and makes them such a pleasure to read (which is good as my kid Never got bored with them). My 18,22, and 24 year old all attest to the magic of Lynley Dodd. Have I raved enough? Do you have children nearby? Then grab one of these wonderful stories and read!!

First Book: My Cat Likes To Hide in Boxes, 1974
Lynley Dodd graduated from the Elam School of Art in Auckland with a diploma in Fine Arts, majoring in sculpture. She went on to teach art before taking a break to start a family. She began to work as a freelance illustrator and collaborated with author Eve Sutton on My Cat Likes To Hide in Boxes. There was no looking back as Lynley went on to write and illustrate her own books for children. Exuberant artwork and bouncy rhymes come together perfectly in books like Slinky Malinki and Hairy Maclary from Donaldson's Dairy. As well as being a visual delight, these are some of the most rewarding books for children and adults to read out loud. It comes as no surprise that, as a child, she adored Dr Seuss because of his "crazy sounds and the fact that he took such liberties with the English language." Other favourite authors included A A Milne and the fairy tales of The Grimm Brothers and Hans Christian Andersen. Today, Lynley is a big fan of Quentin Blake " because of his humour and very clever art work."
