Everyone’s favourite four-legged mischievous pup is coming to town as part of The Lynley Dodd Story exhibition.

The Lynley Dodd Story is an exhibition of original illustrations from the world-renowned author and illustrator of the Hairy Maclary and Friends™ book series.
Showcasing 55 original artworks, this exhibition features favourite characters including Hairy Maclary, Slinky Malinki, Schnitzel von Krumm, as well as lesser known characters such as Sam Jam Balu and the Dudgeon.
Discover how Hairy Maclary from Donaldson’s Dairy continues to capture the hearts of young and old alike.


In Conversation with Dame Lynley Dodd

Before the exhibition begins, join exhibition curator Penelope Jackson when she sits down with Dame Lynley Dodd - the mastermind behind these wonderful characters - to discuss her journey as a writer and an illustrator. This special event will be held at the Redcliffe Cultural Centre running from 3.30pm to 5.30pm on Thursday 7th December. 
Dame Lynley will explain how she notes ideas, words, stories and drawings that spring to mind. She will discuss the story behind a roughly drawn sketch of a small hairy dog, and how this throwaway idea became an iconic children’s book that spanned generations, bringing joy and laughter to thousands of children across the world.
Don’t miss this rare opportunity to meet the wonderfully talented author and illustrator.
