Strega Nona's Harvest
(Putnam Juvenile, Sept. 8, 2009)
An all-new Strega Nona picture book on the heels of the New York Times Bestseller Brava, Strega Nona! Tomie dePaolaÂs beloved character Strega Nona is back in a colorful picture book, perfect for fall and the changing seasons. In this humorous tale, Strega Nona attempts to teach Big Anthony about gardening and the importance of order. But when Big Anthony does not follow her directions and tries to use her growing spell, his small vegetable patch turns into an unruly jungle! What will they do with all the extra vegetables? With beautiful illustrations reminiscent of the artwork that won Tomie dePaola the Caldecott Honor for the original Strega Nona, this celebration of harvest and gardening will make the perfect addition to any Strega Nona collection.
