From the Publisher:
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.

This package includes a paperback book and a CD of Tomie dePaola retelling his classic story against a charming musical score.

Annotation:
This picture book take readers into the childhood of the friendly "grandmother witch" who appears in such books as STREGA NONA MEETS HER MATCH and STREGA NONA'S MAGIC LESSONS. Readers will learn how she was selected to become a "Strega" (a good witch) on the day she was born, how she learned the magical arts from her own grandmother, and even how she met her assistant, Big Anthony. Watercolor, tempera, and acrylic illustrations accompany the text.

Tomie De Paola
In addition to creating his own stories, Tomie dePaola is also well known for his retellings of folktales such as STREGA NONA: AN OLD TALE and FIN M'COUL: THE GIANT OF KNOCKMANY HILL, as well as his illustrations for the work of other authors such as Jean Fritz and Tony Johnston. dePaola has a B.F.A from Pratt Institute, a M.F.A. for the California College of Arts and Crafts, and a doctoral equivalency from Lone Mountain College. He entered a Benedictine monastery in Vermont for a short time after his graduation from college; many of his books reflect his interest in religion and spirituality. DePaola's works are noted for their conscious effort to avoid sexual stereotyping. In 2001 DePaola became the executive producer and star of the television program JIM HENSON'S TELLING STORIES WITH TOMIE DEPAOLA, a program intended to encourage children to use their imaginations and develop their own storytelling skills.
