Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Following the New York Times bestsellers Strega Nona's Gift, Strega Nona's Harvest and Brava, Strega Nona, Tomie dePaolas beloved Strega Nona is back, with the perfect remedy for a houseguest who overstays her welcome.

 

Angelina is so beautiful that all the young men in the village are chasing her, but the one she has eyes for doesnt know she exists. At his wits end, her father sends her to his dear cousin—Strega Nona. Strega Nona, Big Anthony and Bambolona are excited to have a houseguest, but theyre in for a surprise. Angelina is a spoiled young lady used to being boss, and before they know it, Big Anthony is her new footman and Bambolona is her maid. Her nonstop demands have the whole household in a tizzy! Its up to Strega Nona to devise a plan that will make everyone happy—including two comically vain young lovers.

Once again the amazing Tomie dePaola brings Strega Nona and her energetic household to fabulous life. With hilarious illustrations packed with details of Angelinas over-the-top antics, Strega Nonas latest outing begs to be read over and over again.

Synopsis:

In his Caldecott Honor book, dePaolo tells the story of Strega Nona, who is the source for potions, cures, magic, and comfort in her Calabrian town. When Strega Nona leaves him alone with her magic pasta pot, Big Anthony is determined to show the townspeople how it works.

Synopsis:

Strega Nona — "Grandma Witch" — is the source for potions, cures, magic, and comfort in her Calabrian town. Her magical everfull pasta pot is especially intriguing to hungry Big Anthony. He is supposed to look after her house and tend her garden but one day, when she goes over the mountain to visit Strega Amelia, Big Anthony recites the magic verse over the pasta pot, with disastrous results.

In this retelling of an old tale, author-illustrator Tomie dePaola (whose middle names is Anthony) combines humor in the writing and warmth in the paintings as he builds the story to its hilarious climax.

Synopsis:

." . . de Paola's illustrations aptly capture the whimsey of this ancient tale . . . simple line drawings clearly reveal the agony and ecstasy of pasta power, the muted colors create just the right ambiance for a Medieval village."--"The New York Times." Caldecott Silver Medal; ALA Notable Children's Book; "Horn Book" Honor List. Full color.

About the Author

Tomie De PaolaTomie De Paola says: "I don't write for children, I write from my own experience as a child, and I feel that as I get older those experiences are becoming more vivid with distance." Mr. De Paola was born in Meriden, Connecticut, and by the time he could hold a pencil, he knew what his life's work would be. In addition to the Caldecott Honor Book Award he received for Strega Nona, he has also earned many of the prestigious awards in his field including the Kerlan Award from the University of Minnesota, the Catholic Library Association's Regina Award, the University of Southern Mississippi's deGrummond Award, all for the body of his work. The author and illustrator of over two-hundred books for children, Mr. DePaola lives in New Hampshire.
