Doodle Cat is Bored

Publisher: Scribble

Doodle Cat (the clue’s in the name) is bored, but she has a crayon. Thank goodness. However, she’s not sure what to do with it: it’s not for eating soup, digging or dancing. No, it’s for doodling, of course!

Doodle Cat discovers she can doodle anything – herself and Wizard Susan surfing through spacetime on a wave of farts, a pangolin party, or perhaps the gangsterish Uncle Noodle Cat. Boredom has been vanquished forever.

A quirky and original take on alleviating boredom, Doodle Cat is Bored’s design and humour has adult and kid appeal. The end page, where Doodle Cat hands the crayon to the reader, would be an ideal inspiration for kids to draw their own cat having a crazy adventure, thereby ensuring boredom is beaten for another day (or ten minutes at least).
