GREAT submitted by willchet on July 12, 2014, 6:56pm An easy reader with a funny plot, good pictures, and a good moral. This book tells the story of the pasta pot.

Know the spell if you're going to use it. submitted by Kikumatsu97 on August 24, 2014, 8:44pm Anthony! stay away from the pot! This was always a great classic for our family. The illustrations are soft and lovely and the story is so simple.

Classic submitted by wendylv on August 10, 2015, 4:19pm Very fun story for kids.

Fun submitted by kelleyc on July 28, 2016, 6:15pm Classic children's book.

Tomie de Paola's best submitted by FordAlpha on August 8, 2019, 9:41pm This book is deservedly a classic. The illustrations complement the text, which is a skillful retelling of a traditional folktale that has versions from many different places. My kids love the silly drama of the pasta spilling through the town, poor Anthony's haplessness, and Strega Nona's calm, matter-of-fact response to the crisis. I find some of Tomie de Paola's books (including later Strega Nona stories) to be too wordy, or just not very fun to read aloud, but this one is a gem.

Streganona submitted by crp on August 15, 2019, 8:26pm A childhood favorite

An Amazing Children's Book submitted by alexaeaster on July 26, 2022, 11:01pm I read this book to kids I babysit all the time, and I enjoy it as much as they do.

Perfect classic submitted by leah karr on August 19, 2022, 5:39pm With a 8 year age difference in my kids I get to rediscover some favorites….and this is one!

A good read submitted by JennJenn on June 19, 2023, 5:35am While this book has a lot of text, the story and pictures are engaging enough to keep even younger listeners engaged. Definitely a fun read.

Great Italian classic submitted by Helengio on June 21, 2023, 9:12pm I loved this book growing up and now my son does too. He finishes the sentences and knows exactly what will happen next.

Classic submitted by karander on July 13, 2023, 7:14pm A good old tale with a lesson!
