Book Sharing Monday (vii)

This week we have chosen a rollicking rhyme Slinky Malinky by Lynley Dodd. It is a great read aloud story poem which allows me to camp it up in my most dramatic fashion ;)

Slinky Malinky is a naughty cat, a sort of feline Dr Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, who likes to go out at night and steal all the neighbours' belongings. One night, however, he goes too far....

All over town
from basket and bowl
he pilfered and pillaged,
he snitched and he stole.
Slippers and sausages,
biscuits, balloons,
brushes and bandages,
pencils and spoons.

... he bungles the job, wakes up the family and his nocturnal wanderings are curtailed. He becomes a respectable kitty in the end, but i am not sure how long it will last. Great fun.

Hi Jacquie!

Coming by for the first time, thanks to sunnymama.
Thank you for attending her festival at Necessary Room. I do appreciate your visit and nice comment.

I've never read this book but I'll be on the hunt as it's book fair this week at my daughter's school. Sounds like a fun read. Thanks for sharing.
