Cats from all over the world do strange and exotic things, but not this cat. This cat likes to hide in boxes. Young children will love joining in this fun rhyming story with lively illustrations by Hairy Maclary creator Lynley Dodd. If you've been a child any time in the last thirty years, chances are that you grew up with this New Zealand classic, just as fresh and delightful now as when it was first published in 1973.
Lynley Dodd is New Zealand's bestselling children's author/illustrator and has an international following. My Cat Likes to Hide in Boxes was her first foray into children's books and was a collaboaration with her cousin by marriage, Eve Sutton. Her first Hairy Maclary book was published in 1983 and her subsequent stories have become firm favourites. Lynley lives in Tauranga, New Zealand, with her husband Tony, and a fiendish Burmese cat, Suu Kyi.
