Ciao & Welcome to

Cuccia Kids Books!

I’m David Cuccia and I write and illustrate children’s books in English and Italian. I also illustrate various books for writers that have something to say but no visuals to bring their creations to life.

The series I’ve created consists of three books … There’s A Crazy Dog Under the Palace! , Who Ate the Gelato?! , and Topo and the Second Chance Circus. My books revolve around the concepts of friendship, second chances, and just being yourself. They’re created specifically for the child in all of us, whether you’re 9 or 90 years old! I invite you to peruse my website, and I think you’ll understand why I continue to love my job while entertaining kids and adults alike!

One last note: Google has a limited amount of categories and list me as a publisher instead of author-illustrator. I apologize for any inconvenience but please don’t contact me expecting to be published. I am not a publisher! Grazie!
