Lobo Goes to the Galapagos is a fun story about helping friends. When a different kind of bird gets blown in during a storm, Lobo the Wolf pup and Roxy the Raven don't hesitate to help. Bobby the Blue-Footed booby has broken his wing and needs to get home. Lobo offers a ride and picks up some new friends on the way.
I read this to kids aged 3-5. They loved the silly pictures and the alliteration in the names of the animals, especially coconut the crab. Lobo provides a great adventure with a good message. This is a good introduction to some animals as well as a different region of the world, the Galapagos islands.

While 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.
