I Am Doodle Cat by Kat Patrick
Published by Scribble
I Am Doodle Cat is an interesting story of Doodle Cat - a bright red cat - and all the things he loves. Everything from farts to ice-cream feature in the pictures which are drawn in bright and bold colours including red and blue. I particularly loved the feel of the pages and it gave the story a nice warm vintage feel and really seemed to mesh with the story.
"Sometimes I find it hard to choose between dancing and clawing the rug so I just do both at the same time. I make long lists of the things I love because it's important to remember what makes you happy." Doodle Cat definitely does what he sets out to do, to help the reader remember all the little things that make you happy in life and celebrate them through images and laughter.
This is an engaging read for young book fans, with cute depictions that help tell Doodle Cat's story of love. I particularly enjoyed the flow of the story, for a book filled with things a cat enjoys it sure grabs your attention.
I am Doodle Cat, while fun and frivolous on the outside, also has an important message - love yourself!
