“It is a book, drawing and recording app all in one. It has good functionality, but nothing that will overwhelm children and takes it beyond many of the standard book apps for children that we see. This makes it worth the higher price point and demonstrates that some publishers can see beyond the traditional book and are interested in how children can develop their reading and literacy skills using an interactive text.”

Slinky Malinki Catflaps

Lynley Dodd

Slinky Malinki wakes from a cosy sleep, stretches and slips out through the catflap and into the night. He’s soon joined by his friends Greywacke Jones, Butterball Brown, the Poppadum kittens and the rest of the gang.

Hobnobbing happily on the wall, ten in a row, the cats are disturbed by the crotchety Scarface Claw.

The cats hiss and yowl until all the neighbours complain. Scarface slopes off and Slinky Malinki invites his friends home to sit in front of the fire, hobnobbing happily, ten in a row.

Run your fingers over the text to hear the story and touch any word to hear and see it spoken and spelt. You can even colour in pages of the story and record your own voice.

This is not only a marvellous story, but a superb aid for early learning and literacy development.

Now available on both Google Play and the App Store for phones and tablets.
