We loved reading this book- it's amazing the mischief a parrot and cat can get into. My daughter loved trying to guess what they would do next. The illustrations as always are full of detail. A great book to read aloud.

Another great book about Slinky Malinki. Slinky and his bird friend,  Stickybeak Sid are left home alone and they can open doors. They get into so much mischief as they move from room to room. The rhyming of the text is great and I love the illustrations.

Another Lynley Dodd book packed full of chaos caused by the cheeky cat! This time Slinky Malinki is joined by an equally mischievous bird called Stickybeak Syd. What a double-act!
Chaos and havoc are reeked, much to Georgie's amusement!
We love this series!

This is a charming book about a naughty cat and his parrot sidekick. They go from room to room causing mayhem and destruction before coming face to face with an old nemesis. 

The artwork is beautiful and the rhyming prose is neat and catchy. My lg likes the repeating verse where slinky opens a new door and likes telling him off for being so naughty
