Ever dreamed of seeing New York City at Christmastime? The sparkling lights. The Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree. The Rockettes at Radio City Music Hall. And, of course, a visit with Santa.
Well, now you (and your little ones!) can experience the wonder and joy of CHRISTMAS IN NEW YORK CITY without leaving home. How? With the ever-adventurous Bella and Harry, of course!
“Come on, let’s go!!!”
Bella and Harry are sibling Chihuahuas who love to travel all over the world with their family. On this adventure, Bella and Harry are traveling to New York City for Christmas. Join them as they stroll down 5th Avenue, see the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree, go ice skating, take in a show at Radio City Music Hall and even get to meet Santa.
The Bella and Harry series is author Lisa Manzione‘s first foray into children’s fiction writing. 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. Lisa hopes to stimulate children’s imaginations and foster a thirst for understanding the world in which they live. Lisa is a member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators (SCBWI) and titles in the Bella & Harry series have consistently earned the Mom’s Choice Award.
The series is gorgeously illustrated by Kristine Lucco. Kristine studied 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. In addition to her work on the Bella and Harry series, Kristine has also illustrated “Wacky Jacky, The True Story of an Unlikely Beauty Queen.”
And just who can bring these curious Chihuahuas to life? Skyboat’s own Gabrielle de Cuir! The whole family will love Gabrielle’s take on these bundles of energy as she captures their adventurous spirit and humor with gusto and, well, you may never listen to a Chihuahua the same way again.
Oh, did we mention the best part? There are plenty more adventures to come! (We tried telling you Bella and Harry are energetic!) In fact, CHRISTMAS IN NEW YORK CITY! is only one story in Skyboat’s FIRST VOLUME of Bella and Harry’s adventures. Stay tuned for our next Chihuahua blog post to find out more!
