Minky and Mooky are two souvenirs from Kenya. In my first year as a teacher I adopted them as our "class pets". Each child in my Year 1 class took turns to take them home and write a page in Minky and Mooky's diary about what they got up to. Mostly they went to Tescos or to the park. Miraculously they were always returned relatively unscathed minus Minky's head which was unfortunately chewed by a baby sibling when staying with a Somalian family.
