KIRKUS REVIEW

You’re just a tea towel away from superpowers!

Doodle Cat has a cape fashioned from a blue-checked tea towel that grants its wearer superpowers. Doodle Cat can save humans stuck in trees (with the added help of a pillow) and fire high-speed furballs. Doodle Cat can become invisible (when a suitable cardboard box is in the vicinity) and even fluff up to look twice as big. When Doodle Cat comes upon friend Pangolin and discovers Pangolin is sad, Doodle Cat tries using those cool superpowers to cheer Pangolin up…but a pillow “boop” and a playful “bomp” with a box don’t help. Not to worry, though; Doodle Cat has another power under that tea towel: a hug! Pangolin feels a bit better and wants a cape too, because Pangolin has some pretty cool powers of his own (turning into a rock, licking the Milky Way with his snakelike tongue, smelling Doodle Cat’s toots). Thankfully there are enough towels for all their friends to join their super friendship. Patrick’s adorable, perky red cat is the perfect powered, positive puss. Farrell’s simple, bold, and bright illustrations support and extend the cheeky, positive attitude. Pete the cat and Ballet Cat have a new super buddy.

Sure to brighten anyone’s day if they’re feeling down—or superpowerless. (Picture book. 2-8)
