At night though, he creaps and crawls about stealing whatever he can get his paws on and dragging it home to his house on the hill. This rhyming book appeals to children from a very young age, but continues to interest them for years. My little one likes to shout out what Slinki Malinki has just stolen - from sausages and slippers to biscuits and balloons. Attractively illustrated, for ages from one to four.
