When his owners give him a fancy new basket, our favourite little Dachshund will not have a bit of it!

Tucked in a hideyhole
under the stair,
lay a rickety basket
in need of repair . . .

Schnitzel von Krumm is outraged when his misguided family decides to replace his worn out, beaten up, smelly old basket. He turns his nose up at the smart new one, and instead looks for another place to sleep. But no place that he tries feels quite as cosy and comforting to him. All he wants is his smelly old basket back.

It's starting to look as if Schnitzel will never sleep again - will his family ever get the message?

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. It comes as no surprise that, as a child, she adored Dr Seuss because of his 'crazy sounds and the fact that he took such liberties with the English language.'

Other favourite authors included A A Milne and the fairy tales of The Grimm Brothers and Hans Christian Andersen. Today, Lynley is a big fan of Quentin Blake 'because of his humour and very clever art work.

  • Love the Hairy Maclary series

    by on

    I bought this as a gift for a little relative because my children and I loved reading the Hairy Maclary series of books together when they were younger. They are all a delight to read and share.
