    " Strega Nona has a frenemy! When Strega Amelia comes to visit she decides Strega Nona has a pretty good set up, and decides to give her a little competiton. She even hires away Big Anthony! DePaola's signature art is soft, a little comical, and invokes a strong sense of time and place. "

    " We enjoy reading Tomie dePaola's books and this book in the "Strega Nona" series does not disappoint. Strega Nona gets a bit of competition from an old "friend." But she handles it with the grace that only Strega Nona has, as well as with a little help from Big Anthony. "
