Strega Nona Kindle Edition
The New York Times Book Review
"De Paola's illustrations aptly capture the whimsy of this ancient tale... simple line drawings clearly reveal the agony and ecstasy of pasta power, the muted colors create just the right ambiance for a Medieval village." --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

But this is a wonderful version, mostly done in pastel shades and brown, set in a solemnly arcaded southern Italian town. The ills are statuesque but full of energy, with tremendous scenes of Big Anthony the miscreant being carried thru the streets on an ocean of spaghetti. Big Anthony is a hulking dunce, thinking there truly is such a thing as a free lunch. Strega Nona is a litle bit creepy but basically benign, and her witchery need cause no young child a moment's anxiety.
A funny and sympathetic tale of human weakness.
