It's Tomie dePaola's 75th birthday today, and I'm celebrating it by ordering a copy of the just-released Strega Nona's Harvest (Putnam Juvenile). I wish I were celebrating it by visiting the Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art's retrospective of his career, Drawings from the Heart, but that's in Northampton. Someday! In the meantime, I'll have to host my own in-house retrospective.
Do you have a favorite Tomie dePaola book? Please share!
