Strega Nona


Product Description
Now even the youngest readers can enjoy this award-winning story about Strega Nona, the beloved Italian "Grandma Witch, " and her magic pasta-making pot. In this slightly abridged version of the original, author/illustrator Tomie de Paola combines humor and warmth as he builds the story to a hilarious climax. Full color.


The New York Times Book Review: "De Paola's illustrations aptly capture the whimsy 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."
