About the Book

Title: The Adventures of Lovable Lobo – Selfies in the Wild

Written and illustrated by C.L. Murphy

Published by Peanut Butter Prose

Date published: August 1, 2016

Recommended ages: 3 to 7

Number of pages: 28

Summary: Lobo and his sidekick raven find a trail camera in their neck of the woods, and it attracts the attention of forest friends. Images captured have never been sillier or more candid. Just as their wild dispositions are exposed, the photo shoot comes to an unexpected end and they’re all left wondering why. The reason may be obvious.

My Review: I had the privilege of reading an ARC of this fine book before it was published. I have to admit that my interest was peaked once I saw the title. You have to admit that that word ‘Selfie’ must probably be one of the most popular recent additions to our everyday vocabulary. I love how all the animals interact with the camera and put their best foot forward when taking their selfie. I think this book will be ideal for preschoolers and children in kindergarten. As expected from any book put out by C.L., the illustrations are captivating and will unique. A worthy addition to any child’s library.

About C.L. Murphy


Cathy (C.L.) has been creating with and for kids for many years, and because of it she’s ever armed with crayons and not afraid to use or share them. She’s faster than a speeding turtle, more powerful than a newborn bunny, and nearly able to leap tall tales in a single bound. She’s in a position to use her unassuming powers in a never-ending battle for good and silliness while traveling to the deepest (sometimes dark) part of her imagination. She’s been a member of SCBWI since 2012. She lives in a wonder-filled forest, amongst the wildlife with her husband and other untamed animals. They have two wildly perfect sons and a scrumptious new granddaughter.
