Strega Nona,–“Grandma Witch”– is the source for potions, cures, magic, and comfort in her Calabrian town. Her magical ever-full 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 Caldecott Honor-winning 1975 children’s classic, author-illustrator Tomie dePaola (whose middle name is Anthony) combines humor and warmth in his retelling of an old tale.
