Author Rose Marie Colucci has written two books. Penda, The Little Star tells of a young star who gets separated from her family. While on her journey to locate her mother, the star encounters various people and celestial bodies. In Dad’s Car, a young boy wishes to spend more time with his busy mother. The father decides to purchase a car, which he assembles himself, in hopes it will free up more time to spend with his son. Dad’s Car contains the tightest and most believable plot and the one to which children are most likely to relate.
