Slinky Malinki Catflaps is a hilarious rhyming story by Lynley Dodd.

Slinky Malinki wakes from a cosy sleep, stretches and slips out through the catflap and into the night.

He's soon joined by his friends Greywacke Jones, Butterball Brown, the Poppadum kittens and the rest of the gang.

Hobnobbing happily on the wall, ten in a row, the cats are disturbed by the crotchety Scarface Claw.

The cats hiss and yowl until all the neighbours complain.

Scarface slopes off and Slinky Malinki invites his friends home to sit in front of the fire, hobnobbing happily, ten in a row.

Lynley Dodd is an award-winning author/illustrator who lives in New Zealand.

Review by

I've no child right now to whom I can read aloud. I believe if I did, the child's glee would enable me to appreciate the charm of the book more. The rhythm and the humor are there, but they're aimed at the tot, not at the mother of a teenager.
