    Many new titles for children were authored by Dylan Williams and illustrated by Simon Bradbury. One of these books courted controversy in December 2007, when Sali Mali a'r Hwdi Chwim was published, in the story Sali Mali's iPod is stolen by a hoodie. Several bookshops boycotted the book by refusing to stock it. A full list of book titles currently in print can be found at the Gomer Press website.

    A pre-school children's television series, Caffi Sali Mali, was produced by Sianco for S4C in 1994. There was also a spin off of this series called Slot Syniadau Sali. It was written by Ifana Savill using the characters created by Mary Vaughan Jones, including Sali Mali's pet bird, Jac-do, and her good friend, Jac y Jwc. This series is produced using actors in costumes and puppets. Sali Mali runs a cafe in the small village of "Pentre Bach" (English Little Village). A follow up series, Pentre Bach, which consisted of 52 episodes and aired in 6 September 2004, was filmed using a purpose built village, located in Blaenpennal, which is also a guest centre run by Ifana and Adrian Savill. The rights to the series were bought by Al-Jazeera in April 2006, to be shown across the Middle East in Arabic.
