Slinky Malinki has stolen the Christmas tree decorations! Let’s find them and learn the numbers from 1 to 10.

Can you find and count them all from 1 to 10?

Slinky Malinki stalks through the pages trailing his ill-gotten gains from some poor Christmas tree.

Every number from 1-10 is used and each page features a number of stolen items, enjoyable drawings, and has its own colour.

The illustrations that are depicted are fun and so lifelike. The body language and the look on Slinky Malinki’s face as he’s hunting the defenceless ornaments will be so familiar to anyone who has defended a Christmas tree from a cat.

The book itself is a hardcover with sturdy pages that will wipe clean and not tear. It is the perfect size to hold as you and a little person find and count them all. This festive board book is the perfect present for every young number learner.
