Book Description

1 Jan 2000 Junior Classics
One rainy day, while daydreaming about how happy his life would be if he had a son of his own, a humble toy maker named Geppetto starts carving a puppet. And except for the single outstanding feature of a magnificently long nose, which makes the puppet appear somewhat mischievous, Pinocchio looks very much like a little boy, indeed. Just as Geppetto adds the finishing touches, however, Pinocchio springs to life and flees the cottage in search of adventure---only to discover that what he wants most of all is right at home. Based on the Italian novel by Carlo Collodi, this buoyant adaptation features the lush, engaging watercolors of Brian Ajhar.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still A Classic 20 Dec 2010
By M. Dowden HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
When Carlo Colldi (the pen name of Carlo Lorenzini) wrote this little did he know that his fairy tale would be still read all over the world and enjoyed by millions, appearing in cartoons and films as well as the original story for all this length of time. I must admit that I have never seen Pinocchio (2 Disc Platinum Edition) [DVD] [1940], I have only ever read the book. So seeing this title was available for the kindle, and not have reading it in I don't know how many years, I decided it was high time I read it again.

Who doesn't know the basic story of Pinocchio? But - have you ever read the original either to yourself, or to your children? Pinocchio gets into lots of high jinks after he is first made, but ultimately his heart is in the right place. But only with putting childish things behind him, accpeting duty and getting on in life can he progress. This is a great tale for children, but it is also still as great to read as an adult. Filled with animals that can talk, other puppets like Pinocchio, and a fairy, there is just so much to take in. So why not treat yourself and read a nice little magical fantasy filled with humour and adventure.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is the real story 20 Feb 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a review for the free Kindle edition.

Read it! Collodi's original story is light years away from the saccharine, bowlderised Disney version. For example, Disney makes the talking cricket into a funny little man who sings schmaltzy songs like 'When You Wish Upon a Star'.

The book is a lot tougher. Pinocchio kills the cricket in Chapter 4, it then reappears as a ghost and appears again at the end of the story.

The original is dark and dangerous throughout. The moralising is laid on a wee bit thick, but the story swoops and weaves with the most amazing plot (much of which is missing from Disney).

The formatting of the free version leaves a bit to be desired, but the story is so strong it doesn't matter. And for the price who can complain?

A classic. Brilliant!

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I've bought a selection of these books to either read to my grandchildren, or, be read to off my grandchildren, depending on their age. I have given it 5 stars & I do highly recommend them got the following reasons. Value for money, at 1.99 it's less than half the price of some comics that don't last long, the packaging & delivery was fantastic, the children love the stories & last but not least, I am enjoying reading them
