Strega Nona, Her Story: Her Story Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Tomie dePaola serves as "biographer" to his delightful Italian sorceress, Strega Nona, in this beautifully drawn prequel. The tale begins with little Nona's birth on a dark and stormy night, and ends where the original Strega Nona picks up-with Strega Nona taking on the bumbling, knock-kneed Big Anthony as an apprentice. This winsome story is illustrated throughout with Tomie dePaola's warm and sunny watercolors! "dePaola does a splendid job of working this sparkling tale into the Strega Nona canon." -Publishers Weekly

Synopsis:

In this prequel to the Strega Nona books, readers find out how the delightful Italian sorceress comes into the world and how she comes to take on the bumbling Big Anthony as an apprentice. Water color illustrations.

Synopsis:

Mothers are so amazing--is there anything they can't do? Through the heartfelt words of a little boy awed by all the things his mom can do, this glowing celebration of mothers has a universal appeal that will make young readers everywhere want to share it with their own moms. Featuring Tomie dePaola's classic soft illustrations and in a wonderful smaller trim size, this is a perfect gift for Mother's Day--or any day!
