Hello! My name is Julia. I'm really looking forward to sharing this book with you because it's one of my favourites. It's called 'Slinky Malinki, Open the Door.' The story is about a very naughty cat called Slinky Malinki and his friend Stickybeak Syd. Syd's a very unusual sort of bird called a Rainbow Lorikeet. In fact, he looks quite like a parrot. These two scallywags get into all sorts of mischief when they're left alone in their house one day. The whole story's written in a rhyme, so it's great fun to read.
On the cover is a picture of Slinky Malinki and Stickybeak Syd. And do you know, they're swinging from the handles of an open door. Do you think that they're allowed to do that?
