Comments about Hairy Maclary and Friends:
As with most audiobooks, my kids took a few "reads" to enjoy this series even though they knew most of the stories in book format. They now enjoy it and don't seem phased by the heavy Scottish accent (which took us by surprise, although it now just gives us a few chuckles and is pleasant enough to listen to in the car). Don't expect any jazzing up though as some other kids audio books have had (eg no music or theatrical effects).
