Top of the Shelf: Strega Nona's Harvest / For the Duration

Strega Nona's Harvest and For the Duration by Tomie dePaola Two new entries about well-loved characters flow from the pen and brush of a well-loved artist. Strega Nona's Harvest finds the feisty grandmother witch inspired to grow a garden. As usual Big Anthony tries to imitate his mentor but without her magical know-how his gardening attempts go laughably astray. For the Duration, the eighth title in the 26 Fairmount series, relates the ups and downs of life of the second grader in World War II. Once again, he brings to life the humor and drama of the time through engaging text and black-and-white sketches. Click here to read more Top of the Shelf reviews.
