Book Description

2 Jan 2014 Hairy Maclary and Friends

A brand new story in verse about mischievous Slinky Malinki from the author of Hairy Maclary from Donaldson's Dairy. Lynley Dodd captures the essence of cat behaviour in her trademark rhythmic rhyme as Slinky Malinki rouses the family before dawn - and then promptly goes back to bed. Here's a taster:

"He tipped over lamps and he sat on their heads, until he had pestered them out of their beds!"

This is the fifth title about Slinky Malinki in the Hairy Maclary and Friends series of picture books by prize-winning author/illustrator Lynley Dodd, whose signature rollicking rhythm and rhyme have made her a household name with books that are wonderful to read aloud with young children. She worked as a teacher before beginning to write her own books and her first Hairy Maclary adventure was published in 1983. Lynley lives in Tauranga, New Zealand, with her husband Tony and a fiendish cat called Suu Kyi.

5.0 out of 5 stars Slinki Malinki - the main cat :-) 1 Jun 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
What can one say about this but another great book from Lynley Dodd. My son never tires of reading about the "stalking and lurking adventurous cat" and all his mischievous behaviour

5.0 out of 5 stars Slinky Books 5 May 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Bought this for my nearing four year granddaughter and she loves it (mind you so does Grandma!) This lady has a way through easy verse to make a child laugh and the illustrations are very good. We spend as much time with the pictures as with the stories. I have purchased many of Lynley Dodd's books and have had many hours of fun with them. I am expected to read each book three times inititally and then we then return to the front for the pictures. Mum's, Dad's Grandparents or Carers alike please look at these for they not only entertain the child but they learn from it. Admittedly they are slim volumes but they are used here time and time again

Great fun story so beautifully told in rhyme. Lots of chances to do funny voices and bring it to life. Had to read it twice more after the first read.
