About the Author

Lisa Manzione's interest in travel began at an early age. Later in life, as Lisa's own children grew up, the idea for the Bella and Harry series was born. The series was developed with the hope of inspiring young readers to embrace the world and encourage its exploration. Done through the comedic and informative adventures of Bella and Harry, Lisa's hope is to stimulate children's imaginations and foster a thirst for understanding the world in which they live.

The Adventures of Bella and Harry now has over 20 titles currently available in multiple languages and formats. Lisa also ensures there are educational resources (lesson plans, coloring pages and other activities) available for all of her titles.

As a mother of two avid readers, Kristine Lucco has a unique talent and particular flair for children-centered themes that has evolved quite naturally into illustrating children's books. She is quick to credit her own children for inspiring this phase of her art, as it is often conceived by seeing the characters and places through their eyes.

Read an Excerpt

"Well Harry, the Military Tattoo is a festival held at Edinburgh Castle.  The performers are military musicians, mainly using bagpipes and drums during their show.  The festival takes place in the month of August each year.  It is a very exciting event full of music, marching and fun."

"Harry, did you know that Edinburgh Castle has been here for hundreds of years?  The castle was built on Castle Rock, which was formed after a volcano millions of years ago."

"Off we go!  We are now walking down the 'Royal Mile'.  The 'Royal Mile" connects Edinburgh Castle to the Palace of Holyroodhouse or Holyrood Palace.  Holyrood Palace is the official home of the Royal family while they are visitng Scotland."

Interviews


The series was developed with the hope of inspiring young readers to embrace the world and encourage its exploration.  Done through the comedic and informative adventures of Bella and Harry, while traveling through various countries, I hope to stimulate children's imaginations and foster a thirst for understanding the world in which they live.
