5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely superb 11 Dec 2009
I bought this for my 6 year old and we have now read it several times together. He loves it. It is strange, mysterious, funny, incredible, fantastic. This is the original story and is far more than a kids story, it is a great work of literature reaching beyond the storyline to comment and observe on life. The illustrations are wonderful, brilliantly capturing the feel of the writing, amply rewarding the young readers attention and providing incredible moments of wonder in the story. My son has favorite pictures that he can't wait to peep at, especially the great shark! Also I can't believe the price this is currently available for - snap it up at once. This is going to be on our bookshelves forever and be a fond memory for my children. It is so much more than the all those slim expensive picture books for children that fill the shelves and do not compare with the enjoyable but sanitised disney version.

1.0 out of 5 stars Horrible story for young children 26 Mar 2014
By K00L
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I had to skip some of the gruesome description when reading this to my child, yet still it gave him nightmares and fears. I have now found a much better version of the story in our local library and trying to correct the damage that this version of Pinocchio has caused. This book would be a good read for older children (i.e. teens) or adults, but don't tell it to your young ones.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 24 Sep 2013
By A.M
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Absolutely loved this children's book. It is nothing like the Disney version most people have seen. It has deeper plot elements about 19th century Italy, particularly the working class, education and politics. I thoroughly enjoyed it, and have read it a couple of times. I needed it for university, and wrote two essays on it because it was one of the most enjoyable texts I was set.
I would definitely recommend this to friends. It's great for any age.

5.0 out of 5 stars Collodi: The italian Dickens 20 April 2013
By M.I.
Format:Card Book
The italian fairy tale which has become a world famous classic for children. No more words need to be said.
What I liked most of this edition are the very nice illustrations, somehow it felt like reading a book of Charles Dickens...
