I am Doodle Cat by Kat Patrick


I am Doodle Cat by Kat Patrick

I Am Doodle Cat is a cheerful children's book here to encourage imagination, celebration of the things you love, and finding the magic in silliness. Written by Kat Patrick, with delightful illustrations by Lauren Marriott, this book shows a tomato-red Doodle Cat rejoicing in everyday pleasures such as swimming in the ocean, wearing a favourite onesie, and playing guitar. Whatever your age, I Am Doodle Cat reminds you of the universe's splendidness, and above all, to remember to love YOU!


'This uplifting read is a great way to teach your little ones to love and appreciate everything they enjoy about life, from small things to big things alike.'

'Funny, easy to read, lovely to look at, and just great for committing to memory, helping to develop emergent reader's skills.'

'A colourful adventure ... Lauren Marriott's illustrations are truly delightful ... A charmingly put together book perfect for little ones to enjoy reading alone.'

'It's not difficult to see why this won the Scholastic New Zealand Award for Best Designed Children's Book. Silly and sweet ... Kat Patrick's tomato red cat loves a number of things, some stranger than others.'

'One read of this tale of a cat and his list of loves will inspire you and your little one to share what you love.'

About the Author

Kat Patrick recently realised she never actually grew up, and so has been trying to make a living as a writer ever since. Hailing from Blighty, she has written her way around the world, making New Zealand her semi-permanent home after stints in Paris, Patagonia, and London. This is Kat's first children's book after finding a kindred spirit in Lauren, having dedicated most of her time to editing, copywriting, and interviewing for various publications at home and abroad. Lauren Marriott is, above all other things, a doodler. There was never any questioning her career path. Since graduating with a Bachelor of Design, Majoring in Illustration, she has made a successful living of doodling. Endlessly.
