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!
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.
