Slinky Malinki's Christmas Crackers Hardcover – 26 Aug 2011
Who keeps dismantling the Christmas tree and hiding the ornaments? Is that rapscallion cat Slinky Malinki up to his old tricks again?
About the Author
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.'

Great christmas themed book10 May 2019 - Published on Amazon.com
We love Hairy at our house so thought to try out Slinky Malinky as a book to read during Advent. This book is hilarious and cute, especially if you have a cat. More great rythmes from this author.

The grandkids love all of the Slinky Malinki books but his is their least favorite. I was disappointed as it was difficult to find and when it was finally received and read, the response was to ask for the other Slinky books to be found and read. They never got this one out for a second read since. But I do recommend all the others. Truly great stories with wonderful vocabulary.
