Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In Strega Nona's village, the holiday season is a time of celebrations - and nothing says celebration like a feast! All the kitchens are bustling from the Feast of San Nicola, when the children choose the food, to the Feast of Epiphany, when someone gets to be king or queen for the day. Even the animals share in the holiday spirit, and when Big Anthony smells the delicious treats Strega Nona is cooking for them, he decides that just a taste couldn't hurt, right? Wrong! Big Anthony gets his just desserts, while Strega Nona surprises everyone with a special gift.

Starring two of Tomie dePaola's best-loved characters, this funny story features beautiful art, introduces young readers to Italian holiday traditions, and lands Big Anthony in yet another silly predicament that will delight fans young and old.

Review:

"Strega Nona and her entire Calabrian village are busy preparing for holiday feasts, from the Feast of St. Nicholas on December 6 to Il Capodanno (New Year's Day) and beyond. On January 5, the eve of the Epiphany, when everyone traditionally cooks for their animals, Big Anthony can't resist 'Signora Goat's' delicious food, and the resentful goat devours Big Anthony's blanket. Too cold to sleep, Anthony misses out on the dreams of delicious food that Strega Nona's magic grants the people of Calabria: 'The walls turned into ricotta and mozzarella. Bedposts became sausages.' DePaola delivers a hearty sampler of Italian holiday traditions and seasonal cuisine. Ages 5 — 8." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
