An Uplifting Tale of Innovation, Dedication, and the Connections that Unify... This collection of stories follows the extraordinary adventures and achievements of the Mancini family, who rose from humble beginnings to change the face of history with their ingenuity, dedication, and compassion. Peter and Theresa are the embodiment of the American Dream - hard-working immigrants who, after many years of struggle and sacrifice, become millionaires thanks to one great idea, Peter's secret project. But how will their four grown children adapt to their parents' luxurious lifestyle - and will their own passion projects bear fruit as sweet? An incisive, yet fantastical approach to modern problems such as poverty, illness, crime, and undercaffeination, this modern folktale offers a glimpse of a more enlightened society to readers young and old. With warmth, wit, and wisdom, the Mancini family tackles tough issues and offers a beacon of hope to the downtrodden. From art and antiquity to medicine and technology, humankind can learn much from their revolutionary example.
