Overview

The Adventures of Pinocchio by Carlo Collodi

The Adventures of Pinocchio is a novel for children by Italian author Carlo Collodi, written in Florence. The first half was originally a serial between 1881 and 1883, and then later completed as a book for children in February 1883. It is about the mischievous adventures of Pinocchio, an animated marionette; and his poor father, a woodcarver named Geppetto. It is considered a classic of children's literature and has spawned many derivative works of art, such as Disney's 1940 animated movie of the same name, and commonplace ideas such as a liar's long nose.

Parents, if you ever wanted to teach your kids not to lie, this is the book to read to them. If you can convince your children that their nose will grow to an embarrassing length if they lie, and it works, then do it since they'll thank you years later. Also, like Pinocchio, if your child has a dream, tell them that unless they are true to themselves, as in the story, it will never come true.

What a gorgeous read! I laughed so often reading this story and was grateful to have the beautiful illustrations accompanying it. The unabridged version of Pinocchio is a delight. It is a fairy tale with a deep meaning. I am glad that I selected this translation and book. Worth every penny.

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.
