Today the book I am going to be reviewing is Doodle Cat Is Bored by the wonderful Kat Patrick and Lauren Marriott. Some of you might remember when I featured I Am Doodle Cat waaaaay back in April last year - it was the first children's book I reviewed on my blog, so this character has quite a special place in my heart!
If you want to read my review of I Am Doodle Cat, check out this link.
Doodle Cat Is Bored follows the hilarious and unforgettable character of Doodle Cat, as he finds himself caught in the worst nightmare any child can find themselves in... He is bored. No one will listen to him, and no one cares. That is, until Doodle Cat finds a crayon. And suddenly his dull, black-and-white world is transformed into an adventure of colour, silliness and imagination.
Check out the blurb here...
Doodle Cat is back and he is very bored. Until he finds a thing! But what is this thing and what does it do?
Following on from their debut picture book I Am Doodle Cat, writer Kat Patrick and illustrator Lauren Marriott have created another hilarious tale featuring the irreverent bright red squiggle who loves just about everything.
Bursting with imagination and fun, Doodle Cat returns to remind us to be curious, creative and to explore every option.
I thoroughly enjoyed I Am Doodle Cat, and I was so pleased to find that I enjoyed this book just as much as the first one. Doodle Cat is such a loveable, wonderfully mischievous character that your children will love. The feeling of boredom is something every energetic kid (and their tired parents) will relate to and the story is a joy to read aloud, to kids both young and a bit older.
I love how the book transforms from simple, black and white drawings to delightfully crazy and colourful pages as Doodle Cat discovers the wonder of creativity. Just like the first book, this book has such positive messages such as the importance of playing and being creative, and how fun discovering new things can be!
Doodle Cat Is Bored is wonderfully funny, clever and heartwarming, and the illustrations make the book that bit more delightful. There are loads of silly fart and bum jokes that kids will split their sides over!
I'd recommend this book for children for 0-4 years, it's the perfect story for bored kids!
