Written and illustrated by Shanthi Thiruppathi, The Doll Cat is a story inspired by a one of a kind cat named Chloe. As a cat lover, Shanthi knows that each cat has their own personality but Chloe’s is particularly unique. Shanthi always finds herself saying, “You are such a doll!” in response to the cute things that Chloe does. Many others who witness Chloe’s unique behavior compare her to a doll.
This led Shanthi to realize that Chloe was storybook inspiration. The Doll Cat highlights several of Chloe’s doll-like habits through a sweet story about a girl named Fiona who wants a doll, but instead finds a cat who is the most precious doll of all.
The Doll Cat Goes To Paris is an adventurous sequel where the Doll Cat gets lost during a trip to Paris and must find her way back to Fiona.
Astonished at this unexpected turn of events, Fiona assuringly whispered to the Doll Cat.
“You will be the showstopper of this catwalk,” she said, winking a starry eye.
“Meow,” said the Doll Cat.
