Five Questions for Tomie dePaola

Love this speed-date between The Horn Book and Tomie dePaola (Strega Nona, Laura Ingalls Wilder Award lifetime contribution to American children’s literature).

“…the two essentials that I always keep in front of me, and have for years, are: Is this work good enough for children? (an homage to Zoltán Kodály: “Only the best is good enough for a child.”); and read, read, read (and show all kinds of pictures) to your children!”
