Review of Charlene the Star and Bentley Bulldog by Deanie Humphrys-Dunne


Charlene the Star makes new friends in this exciting adventure. She wants to win a special award for jumpers. She must learn important things if she wants to reach her goal. Does she succeed? How does Hattie react when she sees the headline in The Gazette? Why is Cherish so afraid? Your child will be fascinated with the amusing adventures of Charlene and her friends. Children will be entertained and learn important life lessons.

My Review

This story is primarily about Charlene, the horse and Bentley the bulldog who share the same stable. 

Charlene is an accomplished horse decorated with ribbons and her master; Mary Harris is very proud of her. Charlene is a grounded horse and enjoys the company of her mates.

Bentley is a bully, and this story is about how Charlene and the chicken Hattie help bring out the best quality in Bentley. This is followed by success to a fair that is organized by them along with animals of other farms. 

This story has a moral ending thus allowing children to ponder over nouns like unity, friendship, happiness followed by a happy ending! Thus, making it a highly recommended story for elementary children.  

This is the author Deanie's third series of Charlene the Star books, and she continues to deliver a beautiful story telling with the same characters.
