Chris Manzo's Children's Book Has Hit The Shelves

by Kristie Rohwedder

One of the restaurateurs behind Little Town brewhouse has a new product for sale, and no, it is not a revamped version of the refreshingly obsidian beverage that is blk. Water. The Real Housewives of New Jersey’s Caroline Manzo is now the beaming mom of a published author. On Friday, Manzo’d With Children star Christopher Manzo’s children's book, Oliver Brightside: You Don’t Want That Penny , hit the digital and physical shelves (h/t Bravotv.com). The story, which was penned by the reality TV personality and illustrated by Lisa Adams, is Chris' literary debut.

So, what is the middle Manzo's book about? Take it away, Amazon.com:

Oliver Brightside thinks it's going to be another boring day until he finds a heads up penny and remembers the saying, Find a penny, pick it up, all day long you ll have good luck! Oliver's lucky find, not only takes him on a great adventure, but it leads him to something that is absolutely priceless!

Sounds like a most cent-sational (sorry) tale.

Unsurprisingly, the matriarch of the Manzo family couldn't be more thrilled for her son. Throughout Chris' big day, Caroline has thrown a few effusive and supportive messages up on Instagram. Here's the Bravolebrity's most recent 'gram:

Planting herbs with husband Al Manzo and the Manzo pooches, eh? Well, that's a fun way to commemorate a book release — Oh, wait. That's not what I meant to post. But hey, it's a cute photo, so it can stay.

Let me try again:

Coin-gratulations to Chris!
