Description

Slinky Malinki likes to wake up very early in the morning. He thinks his family should too, but do they agree? Lynley Dodd's favourite slinky black cat returns for a fifth mischievous adventure – to pester everyone out of bed early! 'PESKY OLD SLINKY!' the family moaned, 'You woke us TOO EARLY!' they grumbled and groaned . . . Rapscallion cat Slinky Malinki likes to get up before everyone else in the morning, so he can wake the family one by one. He tries every trick in the book: sitting on their heads, biting their toes, leaping on their limbs, yowling. And what do you think the cheeky cat will do once he's succeeded in bothering everyone out of bed? In this hilarious rhyming story Lynley Dodd captures a situation that will be recognised by anyone who has ever shared a house with a cat! 'a delightful story . . . for the littlest cat lover in the family' Herald on Sunday

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.'
