Summary: It’s almost Christmas and Santa finds himself in quite the predicament due to unintended consequences as a result of trying something new. Lobo, and his raven sidekick, Roxy, travel to the North Pole to help the jolly ole’ one and are guided by the Arctic animals. The colors of the season delight along the way and make for a howling good holiday. Can you howl Ho Ho Ho?


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

This is the second Lobo book I’ve read and I love them! The Lobo books are cute and colorful books for young children. In Lobo’s Howliday, Santa sends word that he needs Lobo’s help, so Lobo and his friends immediately head to the North Pole. They receive help along the way from the Arctic animals and get to help Santa deliver presents on Christmas Eve!

I highly recommend this book for young children.
