"Everyone who works hard needs the occasional vacation, and even the village's beloved Strega Nona is no exception--she's mixed up the remedy for stomachaches with that for warts! John McDonough's enjoyment of this story imbues it with warmth and humor; his Big Anthony and Bambolona, in trouble once again, are endearingly human. McDonough's familiar voice invites listeners to close their eyes and bask with Strega Nona at her beachside cottage while her "helpers" get into a fix back in the village. We even have the opportunity to learn a little Italian, authentically pronounced, along the way. J.C.G. (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine"
