Mrs. Delaney's second grade class at Hunnewell School in Wellesley, Massachusetts wrote questions for "Tomie dePalaola."
Q: How did you create Big Anthony with those crazy ideas?
A: I'm a bit crazy.
Q: Who is your favorite character?
A: Tomie, Tommy and Strega Nona
Q: Are 26 FAIRMOUNT AVENUE and HERE WE ALL ARE real?
Q: Did you really scream in a theater?
Q: Do you still dance?
A: I like to dance the "Funky Chicken." When I break dance, I like to do head spins. The truth is that I would like to dance, but I'm not as agile as I once was.
Andrew M.: I'm a little Irish.
Tomie: I'm a little Irish, too (half Irish). I'm also a little bit country, and a little bit rock 'n' roll.
