Book Review & Giveaway: Selfies in the Wild by C.L. Murphy





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

Number of pages: 28


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.

Available on Amazon.


My Review

I received a free ecopy of this book for an honest review. I’d read Lobo Goes to the Galapagos and Lobo’s Howliday so I was looking forward to seeing what adventure Lobo has now. What an adorable book! This one is my favorite so far. It’s simple and cute and although it is targeted for young readers, parents will enjoy reading it as well.

Lobo and his friends find a trail camera in the wild and take a bunch of selfies. An example of one of the selfies is below. Some of them are pretty funny! Finally, the battery runs out and they think they broke it.

At the end of the book is a Glossary of 5 of the more difficult words used. And last, but not least, the author shares her inspiration for the book.
