Slinky Malinki, Open The Door, first published in 1994, is one of the well-known series of books by New Zealand author Lynley Dodd featuring the mischievous cat, Slinky Malinki.[1][2]

Written for pre-school children, with rhythmic, rhyming text it has become a best-selling bedtime storybook in New Zealand. Slinky Malinki has a parrot friend called Stickybeak Syd, and together they open doors in their house and get into mischief.[1]

It has been recommended to educators for the incorporation of instruments during storytime.[3]

After the 2000 US presidential election had been described as a 'schmozzle', Dodd's use of the word 'shemozzle' in this book was discussed in US media,[4] with the following verse quoted:

What a SHEMOZZLE, the things they did, Slinky Malinki and Stickybeak Syd.

They stirred up some spoons and a bowl full of fruit,
In a sea of spaghetti and vegetable soup.[4]
