About the Author

Author: Lisa Manzione
The Bella and Harry series of children's books is Lisa Manzione's first foray into children's fiction writing. As a member of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI), Lisa's entrance into the field of literature is one she has eagerly awaited and is very passionate about. As the daughter of a single parent who worked for a major airline, Lisa's exposure to (and interest in) travel began at an early age. Later in life, as Lisa's own children grew up and her love of animals continued, the idea for the Bella and Harry series was born.

Illustrator: Kristine Lucco
Born in rural Pennsylvania, Kristine's passion for art began at a young age. This interest in art continued and ultimately led Kristine to study at the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale.
Now a mother of two avid junior readers, Kristine's unique talent and particular flair for children's themes has evolved quite naturally into the world of children's books and illustrations. 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.
In addition to her work on the Bella and Harry series, Kristine has also illustrated the most recently recognized children's book, "Wacky Jacky, The True Story of an Unlikely Beauty Queen".


School Library Journal - May 2013

""This combination of anthropomorphic story and geographical guidebook could be useful in social-studies classes where instructors prefer teaching content through stories. Families traveling to Turkey might find the book a helpful tool in preparing their children for the trip.""

Booklist - February 2013

""it's not every day a kid gets to take a trip to Istanbul, and this makes for a nice introduction to the customs and hot spots.""
