On the front of BfK this month is the cover of On Christmas Eve by Peter Collington - see his accompanying piece in this issue. The book was published by Heinemann (the paperback version is now available) and the animated film will be shown on TV at Christmas - all details are given at the foot of Peter Collington's delightful double-page spread. We thank Heinemann for their help in using this illustration.
'Cheeky and cheerful, friendly and fun' by day, perfectly named Slinky Malinki turns 'wicked and fiendish and sly' by night. Lynley Dodd creates a rare opportunity to witness cat movements on a moonlit night and Slinky Malinki is a particularly 'rapscallion' cat with superlative characteristics. The full power and aura of feline independence, real humour and night-time magic are evoked by vivid illustrations, simple rhyme and splendid language. This really captivated children of 6 and 7.
