‘Slinky Malinki’s Christmas Crackers’ is a great picture book by Lynley Dodd. It starts off with a wonderfully decorated Christmas tree with tinsel and bows and everything. But then, things won’t be quite the same as they used to be when that sneaky cat Slinky Malinki comes along... This book would mostly be suitable for an audience of year 1 and up. The thing I like the most about this book is how silly the ending is, but that’s another story (not really but you get the idea). I give this book a 4/5.
