The first title, published in New Zealand in 1983 and making its U.S. debut, introduces the diminutive black dog and a host of canine pals in a cumulative text. They take the town until a giant tomcat sends them all homeward. In the second book (published in 1984), the same motley crew follows the hero in hopes of taking his bone but, one by one, Hairy outmaneuvers them. Ages 2-5.
