Strega Nona

Author: Tomie de Paola
Genre: Story with a moral, children, comedy
My rating on a 1-10 scale: 8

Type: Children's book
Time period: Unknown
Main characters: Strega Nona, Big Anthony
Exciting events: Too much pasta!
Passage from book: Big Anthony rushed in and shouted the magic words again, but the pot kept bubbling. He took the pan off the floor, but pasta kept on pouring from it. Big Anthony grabbed a cover and put it on the pot and sat on it. But the pasta raised the cover, and Big Anthony as well, and spilled on the floor of Strega Nona's house.
My overall opinion: I gave this book an eight because it was pretty funny. Make that very funny. Any kid will love it (and maybe the adults too?).
