I found this book in my house this weekend and decided to read it It isn t a super short book but it isn t very long either The story line seems like it is for little kids but not awful overall I don t recommend it to older kids because it wasn t very challenging Overall not a bad book but not challenging enough for my lexile or reading level

This story has the feel of an old fable the kind of story brought over by your grandparents when they immigrated but it is in fact made up by the author Tomie dePaola and first published in 1975 It reads like a fairy tale of the classical kind and has strong moral messages ones about how you reap what you sow and going behind someone s back and meddling in what you don t understand and being greedy and so on Part of what gives it that old world read old Europe feel are the wonderful illustrations also by dePaola which somehow remind me of stained glass windows Strega Nona is an old lady who lives in the town of Calabria a long time ago The name strega nona means Grandma Witch and Strega Nona helps the local townspeople with their troubles even the priests and nuns of the nearby convent because she has such a magical touchShe advertises for someone to help her around the house and garden and soon employs Big Anthony a strong young man who doesn t pay attention He s very helpful but when he hears Strega Nona saying a magic spell over her pasta pot he gets greedy Strega Nona has a magic pasta pot and when she says the right words it produces a potful of pasta ready to eat She must say certain words to make it stop too and bow three kisses but Big Anthony doesn t pay attention and doesn t hear that partWhen Strega Nona goes away to see her friend Strega Amelia she leaves Big Anthony in charge with the stringent warning not to touch the pasta pot But of course as soon as she s gone Big Anthony goes and tells everyone in the town about the pasta pot They don t believe him so he decides to show them Only once the pasta pot has started producing pasta and everyone has had a bowlful he can t get it to stop Soon pasta is overflowing and rushing out the door and flooding the town It s a disaster and only the arrival of Strega Nona can fix it and she has the perfect punishment for Big AnthonyI have vague memories of reading this as a kid and it really holds its own well I love the illustrations and the story too which is both fun and meaningful It s one for older children around five or six but certainly any child would enjoy this tale
