Doodle Cat Wears a Cape

Publisher: Scribble

Review

Doodle Cat has a cape (a tea towel), which gives him some pretty cool superpowers: he can fire furballs at high speed, become invisible and grow 300 times his own size (kind of). 

However, none of those superpowers work on his friend, Pangolin, who is feeling sad, until Doodle Cat gives her a hug and her own cape, meaning that she too can suddenly do lots of amazing things like lick the Milky Way, smell everything and dig to the centre of the earth. Brilliant! In fact, with the addition of a cape, perhaps anyone can be a superhero.

This exuberant, zany book full of giggles is also a warm-hearted story about friendship. Fans of the first Doodle Cat book, with its delightfully odd cast of characters, will love this new story just as much – its expressive illustration and unusual language is original and fun, and young readers will warm to the characters instantly.
