    ITEM#: 3037808

    Tomie De Paola Tomie De Paola says: "I don't write for children, I write from my own experience as a child, and I feel that as I get older those experiences are becoming more vivid with distance." Mr. De Paola was born in Meriden, Connecticut, and by the time he could hold a pencil, he knew what his life's work would be. In addition to the Caldecott Honor Book Award he received for Strega Nona, he has also earned many of the prestigious awards in his field including the Kerlan Award from the University of Minnesota, the Catholic Library Association's Regina Award, the University of Southern Mississippi's deGrummond Award, all for the body of his work. The author and illustrator of over two-hundred books for children, Mr. DePaola lives in New Hampshire.
    When Strega Nona leaves him alone with her magic pasta pot, Big Anthony is determined to show the townspeople how it works in this classic Caldecott Honor book from Tomie dePaola.

    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.

    In this retelling of an old tale, author-illustrator Tomie dePaola combines humor in the writing and warmth in the paintings as he builds the story to its hilarious climax.
