Crinkleroot's Visits to CRINKLE COVE

I really thought that this book was printed in the sixties.  The  illustrations, simplicity, innocence and sheer cuteness made me think so.  However, when I got home from my favorite used book store, I found otherwise, 1998,  Apparently it's a series.  I will probably get the rest!

Strega Nona Does It Again

Tomie de Paola author and illustrator of the Strega Nona series is one of  my favorites.  I love his art and storytelling.  His latest book Strega Nona Does It Again doesn't disappoint. A relative wears out their welcome and only Strega Nona knows how to get rid of her. Tactfully and skillfully of course!
