Young readers are in for a treat. Author Deanie Humphrys-Dunne’s latest addition to the “Charlene the Star” series is as fabulous as its predecessors. In “Charlene the Star and Bentley Bulldog” a new friend is introduced to the gang: Bentley the Bulldog. In her unique style, Ms. Humphrys-Dunne brings the adorable characters, Charlene the horse, Elliot the dog, Hattie the chicken and the others, to life. The animals amuse the readers with their daily adventures and, just as in the previous installments, they impart important life lessons. Thus, while they are being entertained, children are reminded of the value of friendship and about kindness and generosity. They are also encouraged to dream and work hard to achieve their goals.
Deanie Humphrys-Dunne’s imaginative world is fabulous as is her obvious love for young readers. I highly recommend “Charlene the Star and Bentley Bulldog,” and encourage everyone to add this volume and - if you have not done so already - all of author Humphrys-Dunne’s books to your children’s library.
Kudos to the illustrator, Holly Humphrys-Bajaj, whose magnificent art enhances this beautiful book.
An Engaging and Entertaining Book for Children!- 5 stars!

Another winning book from inspirational author, Deanie Humphrys-Dunne. She is known for her prowess as a champion jumper and horsewoman. Her books reflect her knowledge of horses and share some of her spirit and also teach children life lessons. She has overcome odds of her own and inspires children to persevere and believe in themselves.
This book, which is her fifth and part of a series of Charlene the Star, has a unique style and appeal that will engage and entertain children as they learn how these animals solve problems in their lives. Through Deanie's clever and comical dialogue where she speaks for the animals, children will learn how to interact with others. I have read all of Deanie's books and found them exceptional for children.
