I loved this book.  It would be an excellent addition to young ones holiday reading list.  Beginner readers would be able to read the book independently.  I may have to buy the book to add to my students basket at school.  I'm a teacher and always looking for new books to share with my students. 

The Buzz About the Book

“Lobo’s Howliday is a wonderfully sweet and funny picture e-book featuring the lovable wolf pup, Lobo. The book features beautiful depictions of the Arctic landscape; an amusing story of an unusual predicament Santa finds himself in; and an underlying theme of friendship as Lobo is helped along the way by some of the Arctic’s residents. I highly recommend this wonderful holiday-themed book…” ~ Renee @ Mother Daughter Book Reviews
What could be more exciting than celebrating Christmas with an adorable wolf pup (Lobo) and his friends? Who can resist the rainbow sky, trees, and houses? I couldn’t!~ 5 Star Review, Mrs. D., Goodreads
Kids will love Lobo’s Howliday and why not. This outing is best yet. The illustrations explode with color and seem to pop off the screen (or paper). When I first saw this, I thought it was some new 3-D trick with Photoshop. With each edition of Loveable Lobo, Ms. Murphy expertise improves. The stories get better, the illustrations get better, and the writing gets better.” ~ Sue @ Kid Lit Reviews

C.L.MurphyWhile new to the children’s book writing and illustrating scene, C.L. Murphy (Cathy) has been doodling her way through life since she won a school wide poster contest in the third grade. She’s had the pleasure of working as an artist in residence, creating cartoons and painting murals with the children at local elementary schools. She adores the wonder and curiosity of young children.
She feels that creating picture books is something that she was destined to do, after years of filing away so many ideas, while raising her two sons. She is a member of SCBWI.

She lives amongst the wildlife in an enchanted forest in the beautiful Oregon wilderness with her husband and menagerie. She has always appreciated nature and animals have always played a major role in her life. The inspiration for the Lovable Lobo character came from a wolf that she raised for over 14 years.
