Doodle Cat is a confident squiggle. He really enjoys being red, and is just about the proudest drawing you'll ever find. Here to encourage imagination, celebrating the things you love and finding the magic in silliness, Doodle Cat is the kind of pal that helps you find the greatness in pretty much everything. Who doesn't want one of those? Also his best friend is a pangolin. If you want your child, parent or general favourite person to learn what a pangolin is, or simply be reminded of the universe's wonderfulness, then follow the Doodle Cat method: open up the book, celebrate lentils, educate yourself on atoms and feel happiness rise in your chest.
