This is children's picture book featuring a lonely Dodo named Larry who is not happy because he can't find another Dodo to play. Fortunately a cast with other types of characters is introduced to help . A very cute story with nice illustrations. Thanks Melissa for the copy of this book!

I read this book as part of a challenge I joined. Larry is a Dodo Bird who thinks that he can only be friends with another Dodo Bird. Through the course of the story, many animals come to help him try to find another Dodo, but they are unsuccessful. The lesson learned in this story is that you don't have to be exactly the same to be friends. Like the rest of the series, this book would be great for early elementary kids.

I love this book! The illustration is absolutely adorable and cute. At the beginning, Larry is a lonely bird who wants some friends. As the time goes, there is a dolphin who brought another friend which continues to bring another friend. He still feel sad because he's looking for another dodo bird, not another kind of animal. He realizes after some time that friends don't have to look the same as you, and the most important thing is that they are willing to be there for you. It's a really beautiful story which teach children that you can make friends even though they look different. The important thing about friends are they stay to help to find your happiness. Larry's new-found friends are really kindhearted creature. They want to help Larry even though he is being a downer. There are a lot of valuable lessons in this book. It's a must read and awesome for gifts. I received this book in exchange of an honest review.

Larry the not so lonely anymore In the beginning of the book I thought it was really great hearing about the ocean and beach. In the middle of the book I thought it was a little sad and finally at the end it was great because Larry found five new friends even if they weren’t just like him. I thought just because Larry couldn’t find other Dodo birds just like him it didn’t mean he couldn’t find other friends, the same way I can find other friends that aren’t exactly like me. Alyssa, age 9. What I liked about the story was that he got to play at the beach but he was all lonely inside him until he found some new friends. There was a dolphin, a parrot, a gecko, a tortoise and a bat. They were really fun and the best of friends when they tried to help Larry find another Dodo bird. Alexis, age 6. I really enjoyed sharing this book with my 6 and 9 year old granddaughters. They both loved the story and the pictures. I was amazed that Alyssa was asking right off the bat if Larry was a dodo bird. She went on to lecture us about the dodo bird being extinct. It’s always a joy when a story can drag the kids into some interesting conversation whether it’s what they have learned or about how the story relates to their own feelings. I was actually amazed we got Alexis to sit somewhat still to listen to the whole story even if she was bouncing about throughout. You see Alexis has just a tad of attention deficit disorder. Even so she was able to connect with Larry and really get what he was feeling. Larry the Lonely is a great story for our youngest reader and even enjoyable for her slightly older sister. I would definitely recommend it for story time. This book was received via Candid Book Reviews for an honest review.

There’s only one way to find out. A cute and charming story with quirky, funny characters, Larry the Lonely is a fun read. This book has wonderful graphics and a message of acceptance that will benefit all children, though I do wonder how Larry was able to sleep in the trees if he can’t fly. I give Larry a 3 star rating.

LARRY THE LONEY by EMLYN CHAND I received this Arc for an honest review! I read it to my son his comments were “I love the drawings (well done Noelle Giffin) they are so detailed. It’s sad that Larry doesn’t have any friends. It’s sad that he wouldn’t be friends with the other animals. It’s good that he realised that he could be friends with the animals.” A great children’s story that shows that you don’t need to be the same to be friends that differences aren’t bad things. Being friends with anyone is a good thing whether its racism or disability. This is a good story the only issue I have with it is Larry is resting in the crook of the highest tree. How did he get up there?  Dodos couldn’t fly.
