Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Beverley Fahey
The classics are best read in their original format and if that is too difficult for a reader then a read aloud is an excellent alternative. The "Classic Collection Series" has watered down Collidi's writing to a simplified story with contemporary language that robs it of all its' nuances. The basic events are all there: Geppetto carving the puppet, Pinocchio's encounter with the fox and the cat, his happy sojourn at the playland, his metamorphosis into a donkey, Geppetto devoured by the giant shark, and Pinocchio's eventual remorse and promise of good deeds that turn him into a real boy. Each chapter runs about one or two pages and often the juxtaposition between chapters is awkward and static. The full color illustration are serviceable but do little to evoke the time and place of the story. A better choice might be The Adventures of Pinocchio (Creative Editions, 2005) with the rich paintings of Roberto Innocenti. This abridged version would only be a marginal purchase.
