We Salute you, Mr. Tomie de Paola

Perhaps you’ve heard that a famous storyteller, book-writer, and lover of words has passed away on March 30th. His name is Tomie de Paola and he’s on my list of favourite children’s authors.




As a kid, I absolutely LOVED the classic story of Strega Nona. I mean, who doesn’t love a story about overflowing spaghetti in a town? Afterall, spaghetti is my favourite dish! I’ve assigned it to all of you so you can listen to it yourselves on Epic.

Lucky for us, Tomie de Paola’s legacy will live on through his many books 🙂
