Hairy Maclary and his rascally gang are ready to take a nap, but where will they choose to sleep? Young children will love exploring the different textures in this all-new touch-and-feel story by Lynley Dodd

Everyone's sleepy,
in need of a snooze.
What place do they go to?
Which spot do they choose?
After some frolicsome fun, Hairy and his gang are ready for a nap. But where will they choose to sleep? This delightful touch-and-feel tale starring the rascally Hairy Maclary and his rollicking gang of friends is all about taking a nap. Or at least, it's about trying to take a nap. 
LIttle readers will love exploring the different textures on each page - Hairy Maclary's shaggy tummy as he snoozes in the shade; fluffy Mushroom Magee asleep on a window ledge; tree trunks, bricks and picket fence palings; soft, sleek Slinky Malinki curled up in a ball; and Scarface Claw with his salt-and-pepper coat, who keeps one eye open at all times.
Featuring illustrations from the Hairy Maclary and Friends series, this all-new rhyming story is told with Dame Lynley Dodd's signature fun and humour.
 Snooze with Hairy Maclary is safety tested and suitable for ages 0+.
