“Galloping here
Galloping there
Rollicking, frolicking, everywhere!

(Tala's favorite part...)”
Lynley Dodd, Hairy Maclary Sit

“In the Manglemunching Forest there's a Nickle Nackle tree,
Growing Nickle Nackle berries that are red as red can be.”
Lynley Dodd, The Nickle Nackle Tree

“There are so many great stories that happen in real life there's really no need to think them up at all. I always tell children I have got idea antennae flapping around waiting to grab ideas as they fly past.”
Lynley Dodd
