It is timeworn only by its many versions, and Tomie dePaolas retelling is unique in its resplendent settings and carefully researched detail.

His story also broadens the character of the eccentric old recluse of the small Italian village, who is always sweeping. While Befana is sometimes called a witch, Tomie dePaola gives his readers a chance to make their own decisions, imbuing Old Befana with more humanity than most have offered the lonely old woman in her endless search for the Christ Child.
