Professional reviews

"The admiring fans of the much loved Grandma Witch, Strega Nona, will cheer to the news of this recorded book. Seasoned narrator John McDonough offers a lively reading of the 1976 Caldecott Honor book, now an ALA 2000 Notable Recording. McDonough's gravelly voice is an agreeable match for these stories set in Calabria. Particularly appealing are his trilled Italian phrases and musical renditions. Such enhancements bring both the story and the characters to life in the way that the best recordings do. T.B. "
