Tomie dePaola’s beloved and bestselling Strega Nona is back, with the perfect remedy for a houseguest who overstays her welcome.

Angelina is so beautiful that all the young men in the village are chasing her, but the one she has eyes for doesn't know she exists. At his wits' end, her father sends her to his dear cousin-Strega Nona. Strega Nona, Big Anthony, and Bambolona are excited to have a houseguest, but they're in for a surprise. Angelina is a spoiled young lady used to being boss, and before they know it, Big Anthony is her new footman and Bambolona is her maid. Her nonstop demands have the whole household in a tizzy! It's up to Strega Nona to devise a plan that will make everyone happy-including two comically vain young lovers.
