First off let me say this is one of the strangest tales I have ever read. It occurs in a strange world where puppets can talk, boys can turn into donkeys, and noses grow bigger when you lie. It is weird because I am usually not a fan of weird books like this but somehow the Adventures of Pinocchio manages to draw you into its world. It has unique characters, a whimisical plot, and a message at the end that can touch even the most sinister of hearts. The only reason I do not give this story a full five stars is because there are a few minor flaws to the story that I did not like. For instance Pinocchio saves the life of a dog and the dog promises him that he will return the favor. Instead of creating suspense with this moment the writer decides to have Pinocchio life be saved two pages after this event occurs. Also, the plot itself can be very confusing sometimes and seem to draw on and on. It is like the writers own insanity ends up catching up with him half the time. Still it is a very warm story and one that you can not help smiling after.
