Summary
  • "Barbara Elleman's exploration of Tomie dePaola's career takes a fascinating look at the many worlds dePaola has brought to life through his work: from autobiographical memories to folktales, religious stories, nursery rhymes, and more--including, of course, the inventive world of his most famous character, Strega Nona. Originally published in 1999 and filled with evocative artwork, captivating photographs, and heartwarming anecdotes, this comprehensive book has been updated to cover two new decades of dePaola's creativity. Elleman's thoughtful narrative brings a fresh appreciation to the work of a unique author-illustrator, one who is a true legend of children's literature and a source of lasting joy for generations of readers, young and old." -- inside front jacket flap
  • Updated to incorporate the final decades of dePaola's career, an anecdotal portrait explores the biographical elements in the Hans Christian Andersen Award-winning artist's folktale and nursery-rhyme interpretations as well as the inventive world of his famed character, Strega Nona
