Lobo's Howliday is Howlerific!

The Adventures of Lovable Lobo: Lobo’s Howliday is a fun read and a great way to spend time with the little ones in your life during the holiday season. My niece particularly loved the different kinds of animals in the story, the bright colors and she giggled at the out-of-shape reindeer! This would make a wonderful Christmas Eve activity before bedtime, along with a cup of hot chocolate, for small children.

Cute Christmas Tale

The very first thing I noticed about this cute little children's story is the beautiful illustrations. I very much like the style of the artwork – the smoothness of the edges and the use of color. Lobo, along with his pals Arty the Arctic Mouse and Roxy the Raven, are on a journey to the North Pole to help Santa. Other animals help them on their way to Santa's Village, and the reader finally discovers what sort of assistance it is that Santa needs from Lobo.

Overall this is a cute Christmas story for kids (with, of course, a happy ending). There's some silliness, there's some opportunity for further exploration (the Arctic animals who help the friends, the Northern lights, etc.), and there are some life lessons about helping others/being a good friend too. One point of annoyance: Roxy the Raven says everything twice. Kids will like the repetition, but I have to confess - I kind of want to punch Roxy in the face.

That aside, this is a new idea for a Christmas story (wait until you read why Santa needs Lobo's help, and what assistance he asks Lobo to provide!) and your kidlets will likely enjoy both the story and the fun, bright illustrations.

I loved it

We loved this book. Lobo is called to the north pole to help santa deliver presents.
The story is of his journey up there and how he helped.
I read this a couple time to my boys. Every single time lobo would howl, they would howl. All the characters were amazing.
The lights making the sky and trees look like rainbows. my boys thought it was so awesome seeing rainbow trees.
Such a great kids book!
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
