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. For more information about the series, please visit BellaAndHarry.com

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

"Right now, we are going for a ferry ride on the Bosphorus River (or Bosphorus Strait) in Istanbul, Turkey.  There are two bridges that currently cross the Bosphorus.  The name of this bridge is the First Bosphorus Bridge.  This bridge connects the continent of Asia to the continent of Europe."

"Look Harry, another palace!  It's Dolmabache Palace!  This palace, which is now a museum, is located on the bank of the Bosphorus.  How beautiful!"

"Harry, the Blue Mosque got its name because of the blue tiles on the inside of the walls.  The Blue Mosque is different than most mosques because it has six minarets.  Minarets are tall, slender towers with balcones from which people are called to prayer several times a day."

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.
