After helping Strega Nona plant her vegetable garden and learning the secrets of her success, Big Anthony plants his own small garden on the sly. When his harvest far exceeds his desire to cook and store the vegetables, he secretly leaves them for Strega Nona, who prepares a feast for the nearby villagers. With echoes of the first book in the series, the pleasant story is simply told and satisfying. The illustrations, done in transparent acrylics, radiate all the warmth and gentle humour that have made the long-running Strega Nona series a favourite. Preschool-Grade 3. --Carolyn Phelan --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
