I just finished a new picture book manuscript entitled NONNA'S LADLE. Based on a true incident, it is the story of a young girl whose grandmother comes to live with her family. Nonna brings a mysterious soup ladle withe her, and Lia finally convinces her grandmother to reveal the secret behind the ladle's history. Very reminiscent of Patricia Polacco's KEEPING QUILT and BLESSING CUP, the story deals with traditions brought to America from Europe.
