no, I disagree
I think you mean Kd6 - and no, that doesn't work: 1.... Kd6 2. Kd8 Kh4 3. c8=Q and black has a queen to contend with.
It's a perfectly decent tactical exercise, in that there is a clear winning line, and only one. The given solution is the quickest way to guarantee the capture of the pawn.
so 3.c8=Q is not a good idea for white.....
Good point, I overlooked this! But white then has the cunning underpromotion 3. c8=N+, and the position is drawn.

right c8=N+ is the reason....
