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.

Review:

"DePaola's timeless Tuscan heroine trades in her magic spells in a pop-up book that will be best appreciated by kids who already know Strega Nona, Big Anthony and the rest. There's little storytelling: the initial spread has a small autobiographical inset 'by' Strega Nona (complete with pop-ups) and a text box in Strega Nona's voice, declaring her intention to pass along her own and Grandma Concetta's secrets 'for a magical life.' The first of these is 'famiglia — family'; accordingly, Sabuda and Reinhart (Encyclopedia Mythologica) supply a towering tree from which ancestors' portraits bloom and from which a swing hangs, holding Strega Nona. Elsewhere, Strega Nona's friends dine under a grape arbor; Big Anthony slides into the village square on an avalanche of pasta; Strega Nona's pasta pot overflows with red hearts (her 'secret ingredient' is love). Don't look for Sabuda and Reinhart's most jaw-dropping work: built for relatively young hands (though not for toddlers), this book has few movable parts, and the interactive elements, like lift-the-flap shutters and doors on village houses, are clearly labeled for durability's sake. All ages." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

A beloved character created by dePaola comes to life in spectacular pop-up art engineered by the "New York Times"-bestselling team of Sabuda and Reinhart. In six spreads, Strega Nona shares her words of wisdom for leading a magical life, making for a glorious celebration of important values.

Synopsis:

Beloved author-illustrator Tomie dePaolas take on traditional “Jack tales”—in which a young hero ventures out to seek his fortune and gains it through luck or pluck—is perfect for preschoolers. His heros reward is a wealth of animal friends who increase in number—and volume—as the story progresses. When Jack sets out to see the world and find a place of his own, hes surprised to attract a following of enthusiastic animal friends eager to join him on his quest. Jack and his entourage all have high hopes that they will find just what they are looking for as they travel on their merry way. Children will delight in the cumulative chorus of animal sounds as the pages get more and more crowded with the residents of this delightful kingdom.

Synopsis:

Seventy-five years ago, a spirited little red-headed girl stepped out of the pages of a book and into the hearts of readers. Madeline may have been the smallest of the twelve little girls who always walked in two straight lines, but she was the bravest—to the tiger in the zoo, Madeline just said “poo poo”.

Madeline went on to inspire eight sequels, as well as television and movies, dolls and teasets and games. She is loved by millions of readers all over the world.

To commemorate this anniversary, this lavish slipcased edition of the original Madline book includes a full-color panoramic pop up spread of Paris, with all the famous landmarks, including Madelines house. 

Happy 75th birthday, Madeline!
