About the Book

Title: Lobo Goes to the Galapagos (The Adventures of Lovable Lobo)
Author: C.L. Murphy | 
Publication Date: August 27, 2014
Publisher: Peanut Butter Prose
Recommended Ages: 3 to 7

Summary: Lobo returns in this adventure, sweeter and a bit salty this time. This lil’ wolf pup finds that there’s nothing like a little sea air to bring out the best in him and his unlikely tag-alongs. Take a trip to the Galapagos with Lobo and his right-hand raven, Roxy, as they help an injured, new feathered friend return home. Lobo faces some fears and witnesses the joy that comes from helping others in this “birds of a different feather DO flock together” tale.  

My Review :

I showed the picture book to my 5 year old and he immediately agreed to read the book with me. Rather I was reading it to him and he was commenting on the pictures and stories. That he made me read it to him twice and wanted another go at it felt good and he agreed the story was quite good.
The matters because he likes to point out the loopholes in many a stories I share with him. It’s no walk in the park writing stories for little kids!
The author has done a good job with the story line.
It is a simple picture book with clear big illustrations that keep the reader glued to the story as it unfolds. The big pictures with the simple sentences make an interesting read.
As Lobo and his friends make their way to the Galapagos Island, kids learn and make friends with many new animals.
Lobo sure has interesting friends and my kid and I would love to read many more of his adventures.

The Buzz

“Who knew geography and learning about animals could be this much fun? Lobo Goes to the Galapagos is my new favorite children’s book and is highly recommended. ” ~ Jack Magnus, Readers’ Favorite
“While Ms, Murphy’s uniquely whimsical and vibrant illustrative style is perfectly suited for the wild, tropical feel of this colorful book, and easily captures young readers’ attention, there is also a subtle, quiet beauty to the storyline’s overarching themes of friendship, trust, perseverance, and goodwill. Lobo’s tenacious and giving spirit are delightfully captured in this fifth installment of puppy-fueled fun. In fact, it’s sincerely so easy to fall in love with “Lovable” Lobo that I’d happily follow this well-meaning, big-hearted, wolf pup to the very ends of the earth!” ~ 5 Star Review, Indie Author Girl, Amazon

“What an adorable story! I read this to my nephew and he couldn’t stop giggling at the silliness of Roxy as well as Lobo’s cute friends Bobby, Sunny, Coconut and Sandra. The author was very clever in portraying a tale of friendship, adventure and excitement that is sure to enthuse young minds around the world.” ~ 5 Star Review, Gina D., Amazon
