About the Author:

Lynley Dodd is New Zealand's bestselling children's author/illustrator and has an international following. She worked as a teacher before beginning to write her own books in 1974 and has published over twenty brilliant stories about Hairy Maclary, Slinky Malinki, Scarface Claw and lots of other memorable characters. Lynley lives with her husband and cat in New Zealand.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 2 In Hairy Maclary Scattercat, the furry dog ``felt bumptious and bustly, bossy and bouncy and frisky and hustly.'' After scaring off five different cats, along comes Scarface Claw, who chases the dog ``ALL the way home.'' The bouncy rhyming text is often forced with uncommon names and words. Illustrations are colorful, clear, and give a good portrayal of the animals, but Hairy Maclary makes a much better impression in the previous books about him (all Gareth Stevens). Wake Up, Bear is set in the spring, and Bear's friends try to awaken him. Lion roars, Squirrel drops a nut, Monkey tickles his toes, etc.but Bear sleeps on until Bee buzzes around and reminds Bear of honey, causing him to awaken. Clear and colorful illustrations supplement the simple-minded, predictable story. There are also some major flaws. Bear is under a Bulbul tree, which is not listed in a standard encyclopedia or dictionary. (A bulbul is a kind of tropical bird.) Also children will be quick to note that a mixed bag of jungle, forest, and domestic animals, obviously out of their habitats, try to wake Bear. Almost any picture book collection can deliver a more credible animal story that will prove more enjoyable. Although the back of the book lists these books among others as ``Gold Star First Readers,'' they have too many difficult words for beginning readers. Nancy A. Gifford, Schenectady County Public Library, N.Y.
