Bought this as a birthday/St. Patrick's Day gift for our five-year-old granddaughter. She appreciated the humor of lazy Jaimie as much as she did disobedience of Big Anthony in STREGA NONA. She first fell in love with Tomie dePaola's MY FIRST HALLOWEEN, and since then has acquired quite a collection of his holiday books for Christmas and Easter. His art is appealing to both young and old and comes in a variety of formats from paperback to board books and even popups.
