Top of the Shelf: Strega Nona's Gift

Strega Nona's Gift by Tomie dePaola (Nancy Paulsen Books) DePaola incorporates eight December Italian festivals in his newest extravaganza starring the lovable grandmother witch and her bumbling companion Big Anthony. Special treats are being made for each of the occasions and, of course, Big Anthony meddles in the preparation. In the end, Strega Nona surprises everyone with a very special gift and Big Anthony? Well, he gets his "just desserts." Once more, dePaola gets it right in a book to delight old and new fans. On shelves October 18th. *           *          *          *         *          *          *          *           * Want more recommendations from The Carle Bookshop?
