My grandma always had this book in her back bedroom. When I would stay overnight at her house, she would read me Madeline, One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish, and Strega Nona. I love this author and have collected all of his books in my classroom library. This one is the most special to me because it reminds me of my grandma and also because my mom met Tomie and got an autographed copy!
