It's Only Ink! Slinky Malinki-A Rapscallion Cat
It's Only Ink!
Slinky Malinki-A Rapscallion Cat
"Slinky Malinki" is a black adventurous cat with a warbling wail and bright yellow eyes. He is "cheeky and cheerful, friendly and fun" and lovable by day. But at night, he becomes "wicked and fiendish and sly". At night he becomes a mischievous neighborhood thief.
"Slinky Malinki" answers the call of the moon and shadows as he collects slippers and brushes and spoons. He even pilfers balloons and glue. He returns home nightly with piles of junk only to find that his treasures cause him more trouble than not.
This reviewer finds Lynley Dodd's rhyming tale for children to be a playful and entertaining book. Appropriate for all ages, "Slinky Malinki" is a must-have for all bookshelves-personal and academic.
