Now, for the first time, Strega Nona reveals her life's story to artist/author Tomie dePaola, in this wonderful prequel to the famous "Strega Nona" books. From the dark and stormy night when she is born to the day she takes the place of the retiring Grandma Concetta as a strega, here is Strega Nona's magical story. Full-color illustrations.
From the Publisher:
When Strega Nona leaves him alone with her magic pasta pot, Big Anthony is determined to show the townspeople how it works.
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.
Author Bio
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.
