Strega Nona and Big Anthony

As we were winding down the day today I got out a copy of Big Anthony by Tomie dePaola. Big Anthony is Strega Nona’s helper. Strega Nona is “Grandma Witch” I was explaining to the class what Big Anthony’s job was and one of my boys said, “So, Big Anthony is one of her minions?” I asked, “Minions?” And he said, “Yeah, one of those people that do all of the work for someone…….”

So, where do they GET this stuff?
