Publisher Description

Will Slinky Malinki and Syd the rainbow lorikeet open the door to more trouble than they can handle? Slinky Malinki jumped high off the floor, he swung on a handle and opened a door. Slinky Malinki and Syd the rainbow lorikeet are partners in crime. Left alone in the house they get up to all sorts of mischief. Shredding up sheets, tangling towels and paddling in powder, the whole house is a muddly mess - it looks as if nothing will stop them! But something awaits them behind a door . . . maybe this time they'll meet their match? Slinky Malinki is as naughty as ever in his second titular adventure in the Hairy Maclary and Friends series. Read all the Hairy Maclary and Friends books by Lynley Dodd!

Author Biography

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.'
