5.0 out of 5 stars A superb edition of a truly timeless classic. 22 Mar 2002
By Midwest Book Review - Published on Amazon.com
The Adventures Of Pinocchio by Carol Collodi is a timeless classic, reprinted in hardcover by Simply Read Books with a newly revised text based on the translation by Carol della Chiesa. The memorable, award-winning illustrations of Iassen Ghiuselev add wonderful flavor to the engaging story of a wooden boy who longs to become human. The Adventures Of Pinocchio is a superb book to read to young children before bedtime, at the pace of one chapter a night, since it's significantly longer than the average fairy tale. A treasure of a book and a gift to be remembered.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Version of Pinocchio Out There 3 July 2009
By Cyber Gypsy - Published on Amazon.com
This book is the original Pinocchio and is a literary masterpiece. It is the perfect story for a child aged 6 and over, because Pinocchio goes through the same dilemmas and tests that all humans must go through in less obvious forms before they can reach true humanity. Until that time, Pinocchio remains wooden. It is a wonderful metaphor for children to imbibe. The humor brightens the otherwise 'horror' situations that Pinocchio finds himself in.

2.0 out of 5 stars No Lie 7 Feb 2009
By Carol H. Santucci - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Even though these were not the illustrations I recall from the book I read as a child, I found them captivating. The feeling was very similar to those I recall, and I am very happy to be adding this book to my little library. I gave it four stars
