Review

"The Adventures of Lorenzo the Bear at Jellyfish Cove, is a delight! Dutra combines an exciting and fun adventure tale with some of the most inspired illustrations I've seen in some time. My eyes danced as they followed along the hilly trail that leads Lorenzo to Lucy. Every page is filled with story and eye-popping art. As I read it, I sat with a huge smile on my face -- and I'm still smiling. This a kid's book to get excited about, and it is most highly recommended." - Readers Favorite 

"A wonderful, warm book full of fun, and we can't wait to read more of Lorenzo's adventures. Colour fills every page - bright blue skies, rolling hills for Lorenzo and Lucy to explore, and a whole believable world. This is a classic tale of rescue given an energetic and colourful boost."- Kid Literature Authors

"The drawings were cute and childlike and would definitely appeal to young readers. It looked like colored pencil illustrations which were nice in this computer generated world. Some of them were so silly they had me laughing out loud. I can't even imagine the kind of fits they would send my niece and nephew into. The story is fun, sweet, and quick. The perfect kind of story that kids will love and request when you read them books night after night. Carmela Dutra has a good one here." - Readers Favorite 

"I enjoyed the amazing talents of Carmela Dutra. She not only wrote but also illustrated her story The pictures were colorful and cute, obviously hand-drawn the good ol' fashioned way with pencils. I appreciated the little biographies at the beginning of the book of the three main characters: Lorenzo, Lucy, and Lord Boris. The story was interesting and kept me flipping the pages to find out more. I could just imagine being a kid on the edge of my seat. I appreciated the adventure and the sweetness of the story and would definitely read more by Dutra."-Readers Favorite 

"Wow! Brava! I love this book!"- Readers Favorite

Any child that wants to be a [insert "pirate", "wizard", "Indiana Jones type"] will related to Lorenzo the Bear who practices each and every day with his sword just in case he meets a pirate and has to fight him. This imaginative story has a colorful cast of memorable animal characters, such as Lord Boris the Red-Butted Baboon, that brings a smile to kids and adults alike.

Excellent book to read aloud with enthusiasm. While enjoying Lorenzo's Adventure you and your child can engage your imagination and join in. It's beautifully illustrated so that your child can help tell the story or add to it. No doubt this will be the book that is read again and again and again and again.....

The Adventures of Lorenzo the Bear Encounter at Jellyfish Cove is a delightful children's book that will appeal to both boys and girls alike. Filled with descriptive characters, combined with vintage style of illustrations this story really comes alive! Any child who reads this book will be drawn to Lorenzo and want to join him in rescuing Lucy. I like how it kind of had a classic fairytale feel to it, rescuing the damsel in distress but it had a modern twist. He's a bear that sword fights and has to go up against an evil pirate named Lord Borris the red Red-Butted Baboon.

I also appreciate the message of story even though Lord Boris is clearly evil, Lorenzo tries to see the good in him. That is something all children can take away from the story; wonderful lesson looking past peoples faults to see the good in them. If you want a story that has good lessons, classic illustrations, and descriptive characters; The Adventures of Lorenzo the Bear is the book for you!

Lorenzo the Bear and his friends are delightful in character. This book offers children the use of their imagination, along with colorful illustrations, they too can join in the adventure. Friends helping friends is always a good lesson to learn. I am looking forward to Lorenzo’s next adventure.

There can't be a one of us that hasn't spent time lost in an imaginary world, dreaming up adventures for ourselves, whether it be as a robot or a dinosaur or a pirate. Lorenzo here wants to live his dream, and when his friend Lucy is taken, he has an opportunity to show how much friendship means to him.

Our hero has a very happy-go-lucky nature about him, an approachable quality that will make him very appealing to young readers. He also looks very cuddly, and will remind children of their own bears, perhaps get them wondering what their teddies imagine themselves to be...
Lorenzo practices with his swords everyday, and there'll be lots of children that read this who practice something regularly as well, be it dancing or sport or a musical instrument, so they can identify with the hero bear on this level as well. Like some of those that will read this story, Lorenzo was brought up as an only child, so imaginative play is particularly important for him, as is the close friendship he has made with Lucy.

It's not just Lorenzo himself who's imaginative: the story is as well, and the illustrations put a big smile on my face from the instant I saw Lorenzo with his pirate swords. Colour fills every page - bright blue skies, rolling hills for Lorenzo and Lucy to explore, and a whole believable world. This is a classic tale of rescue given an energetic and colourful boost

There's a great villain in Lord Boris the Red-Butted Baboon (who's going to be quite hard to forget), and the author even manages to use this evil pirate to show a depth to our Lorenzo: he still gives the baddie an opportunity to show a better side of himself. It makes for a well-rounded role-model.
