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.


I received a free ecopy of this book for an honest review.

Lobo Goes to the Galapagos is a cute and colorful book for young children. Lobo and Roxy help their new injured friend, Bobby, return home to the Galapagos. It’s quite an adventure. They even accept a ride from a shark, which was scary for Lobo but he decided to put his trust in her.

At the end of the book is a map showing where Galapagos is. I thought that was a great idea.

I highly recommend this book for young children.
