Scarface Claw, Hold Tight

    What a peaceful morning! The sun is out and Scarface Claw is busy doing what a cat does best - he's lazing around in a sunny spot. A sunny spot that unfortunately happens to be the roof of a truck...

    Suddenly,
    there was a shudder and sway,
    the whirr of an engine,
    then off and away.

    Off goes the truck down the drive - with Scarface ON TOP! Who will come to poor Scarface Claw's rescue?

    Featuring trucks, trailers and even Gran's scooter, Scarface Claw's latest escapade is perfect for reading aloud again and again. Buckle up for another adventure from the creator of the much-loved Hairy Maclary and Friends series!

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.
