Merry Christmas Strega Nona

Merry Christmas Strega Nona
Tomie dePaola
In this, Tomie dePaola's fourth book in the Italian folktale tradition, it's Christmas-time in the little town in Calabria. There is no time for Strega Nona's usual business of curing headaches, mixing love potions, and getting rid of warts. Instead, it's time for her annual feast of the whole town, complete with baccala, or Italian codfish stew, roasted peppers, and Christmas cookies.

Christmas has a magic of its own, and no one knows more about magic than Strega Nona, certainly not Big Anthony. But poor Strega Nona: How will she ever have her feast ready by Christmas Eve--with untrustworthy Big Anthony as her only helper?
