Author Biography

Author Dawn Doig, M.Sc., M.Ed, is the author of 15 children’s picture books on a variety of topics including childhood hearing loss, bullying and forgiveness, dysgraphia, learning English as an additional language, and positive self-image. Some of her books are just plain silly and prone to giggles. She has been blessed with two extremely rewarding careers working with children as an audiologist and as an English as an additional language teacher in different parts of the world including way up north in the Canadian arctic, Kuwait, England, Saudi Arabia, Mongolia, and Cameroon. Dawn has two grown children who live in Canada. She currently resides in Cameroon with her hubby Bruce and two very rambunctious but adorable female kitties. She gets her inspiration for her children’s books from her family, the children she has the pleasure of working with, general life experiences, and her feline friends. Dawn is a passionate baker who loves to share her homemade goodies with others. She is always ready to head out on the next thrilling adventure with Bruce and they never know where the wind will blow them to next. All proceeds from Dawn’s books are currently being donated to help raise the funds to build a new school for the deaf/orphanage in Cameroon, Africa.

Kydee by Dawn Doig, with color illustrations by Savannah Horton, is a picture book about a kitten found shivering on a busy street in freezing winter weather. Kydee is only eight weeks old. She’s lost, scared, shivering in the cold, and wondering if her mother will ever find her. Fortunately, a kind person hears her mewing, picks her up, and takes her home. Kydee’s life takes a wonderful turn. She’s warm, snuggled and hugged. She plays with bouncing balls and feather toys, pounces on an older cat in the home, and chases the red dot of a laser pointer. After a long and happy day of kitten play, Kydee falls asleep with wonderful dreams in her head, safe and loved at last.

Dawn Doig gives us a charming story that young children will certainly enjoy. Who could resist such a cute kitten as Kydee? She purrs and licks, runs and jumps, hops and pounces, and chases and climbs her way into the reader’s heart. Written mostly in rhyme and beautifully illustrated, the story teaches both the concept of humane care and kindness to animals, especially those lost or abandoned, and the emotional reward of pet companions in our lives. The rhyming contains fun and silly phrases, such as Bipple-Bopple-Boop, Flipple-Flopple-Floop, and Flicky-Flacky-Flout, which children will enjoy mimicking and repeating. The presence of the older cat, Old Mama Yafa-Fluff, lets us know that this new home is pet-friendly and that little Kydee will have a cat companion as well as a human one. A fun read.

Crazy cat baby approved

Our crazy cat baby is in charge of bedtime reading and she loves the 'kitty boo' (kitty book). She happily flips through the pages and giggles as we read.



Heartwarming story and beautiful illustrations. Perfect for any child that loves animal stories!


Fun Read

My son enjoyed reading this book as he loves pet animals. This is a cute story of Kydee, the stray kitten, who finds a home. It's a good bedtime read.

Kydee is a sensational book written with a lot of love for kittens. You can literally feel this love as you read. The book is an awesome read for every child because it will help children cherish and observe kittens and other pets closely in order to understand their cues and care for them properly too.

I love this book.
