It’s Friday and once more I bring you an author from one of the groups I belong too. As I checked Marion Lovato‘s work I realised I haven’t had many children’s authors as guests (some Young Adult authors but…) and I decided it was ample time to have a children’s book.
First, a few wards about Marion Lovato (and links to get in touch and learn more about her):
I am a retired teacher. After spending 30 years in the classroom, I decided to write a children’s book about my cat. Even though Sam, the Superkitty, was the first book that I wrote, I was selected as a finalist in the MARSocial Author of the Year competition. Very exciting!

Here a link to a very interesting interview:
And here is her book, Sam, the Superkitty:
The family doesn’t know that their adorable kitten, Sammy, is really a Superhero at night and protects them from all dangers.
I could not resist but leave you this fantastic review:
5.0 out of 5 stars I know this cat personally… March 11, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
My first impression after reading this book is ‘yeah… right!’. You see, I happen to know this cat personally (he is my half brother), and my suspicion is that since he wrote it himself, was able to include a lot of embellishment, and to hide the fact he is always getting in trouble. The problem is, he is a lot more like Tony Stark than Clark Kent. He does save the day, but only in spite of himself. I know from personal experience that he is only interested in doing good if there is something in it for him, which doesn’t really come across in this slanted depiction of himself. Don’t let this book fool you – he really is a ‘Super Kitty’, but he is no angel…
If you want to contact he author, this is her Twitter account:
Thanks to Marion for her visit, thanks to you all for reading, and you know, if you’ve enjoyed it, like, comment, share and CLICK!

I’m pretty sure I’d change that to, A bird is a bird, a dog is a dog and a cat just know’s he’s the boss. I haven’t met a cat yet that doesn’t think the world revolves around it. I wish Marion much success with Sam, and Sam much joy on his adventures.

Thanks David. Yes, you’re right. I think cats feel pretty superior to humans and know how to enslave us. Have a great day!

A beautiful children’s book is not just for kids. I:)t’s important for adults to nourish their inner child with some whimsy now and then. Lovely review, Olga. Congrats Marion.
Thanks Teagan. Oh yes, lovely children’s books for all of us young at heart!
Well done, Olga. Thanks so much for your support! Have a wonderful weekend.
Thanks Marion. It was a pleasure and I hope to have you back with any new adventures.
Reblogged this on Smorgasbord – Variety is the spice of life and commented:
Children’s authors are special people – children usually have pretty good imaginations but bedtime stories and learning to read can ignite all kinds of adventures. Another great piece from Olga
Thanks so much. Yes, you’re right, it’s important to get children in the habit of reading early. It’s one of the constant loves of life…
Have a good weekend Olga – thanks.
