Marion Lovato and ‘Sam, the Superkitty’. A fabulous illustrated children’s book.

Hi all:

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!

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

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…

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 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…
