Strega Nona
( by Tomie dePaola, Putnam $7.99 Score: )

Strega Nona has become a classic storybook. In fact, Tomie dePaola has created many well-loved books about this kindly, grandmotherly witch. In this first story she leaves her bumbling assistant, Big Anthony, to take care of her house. He has been warned not to touch Strega Nona's magic pasta pot, but he does not listen. Nor does the pot! Big Anthony knows how to get it to make pasta, but not how to stop it. Be sure to look for other Strega Nona tales. They are also available on DVD in many of the Scholastic Storybook Treasures series. See reviews under videos. 4-7.
