A little girl dreams of vacationing in the solar system instead of California. This new children’s book released by Dog Ear Publishing, which tells her story, is appropriate for dreamers of all ages.

Dog Ear Publishing releases “Catching a Shooting Star” by Sabrina Mincin.

Nina’s plan seems simple: Travel on a rainbow and use a golden lasso to catch a shooting star – just the way a ‘star princess’ would.

When she and her mother can’t decide where to travel for vacation, Nina makes plans of her own. Instead of visiting California, where her mother wants to spend vacation, Nina catches a shooting star in this new children’s story, traveling from planet to planet on an unbelievable tour of the solar system.

Nina’s plan seems simple: Travel on a rainbow and use a golden lasso to catch a shooting star – just the way a “star princess” would. Every time her mother makes a suggestion, Nina counters with one of her own. Instead of riding a trolley car in San Francisco with her mom, she proposes dancing on Saturn’s rings. Nina also suggests toasting marshmallows on Mercury instead of making them by a simple campfire. A shooting star brings an unexpected chance to take her dream vacation.

Whimsical illustrations by Carolynn Mincin add character to this charming story that shows dreams – even those that seem fantastical – can come true. Author Sabrina Mincin, 16, wrote this story when she was 6 years old. She didn’t think about publishing the book until she was a sophomore in high school. She is already working on her next book.
