Slinky Malinki




Slinky Malinki steals anything from a clothes peg, to a slipper, to a string of sausages, to a clock! Our hero is a BAD cat! Will nothing stop him?

Lynley Dodd’s classic first adventure of Slinky Malinki, a fiendish black cat who goes on a midnight stealing spree.
Slinky Malinki
was blacker than black,
a stalking and lurking
adventurous cat.

By day Slinky Malinki is an adventurous cat, cheeky and cheerful, friendly and fun. But at night he becomes a thief, stealing everything from squishy bananas to milk bottles and pottery smocks.

His crimes become ever more daring, until one rascally night between midnight and four, Slinky Malinki steals MORE than before . . .

Told in wonderful rhyme and through pictures full of life and movement, Slinky Malinki is the very first adventure of the rapscallion cat in Lynley Dodd's famous Hairy Maclary and Friends series.

About the Author

Lynley Dodd

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.'
