    When I spotted this volume in a bargain box I just had to have it even though the condition was poor. It is, after all, the first edition of 'Walt Disney's Pinocchio' that was issued to coincide with the animated feature film that was released in February 1940. A little tender loving care has saved the book from the recycling pile and brought it back to life (not pristine mind you!) - and there is nothing more satisfying in doing that to a book!

It is, after all, the first edition of 'Walt Disney's Pinocchio' that was issued to coincide with the animated feature film that was released in February 1940. A little tender loving care has saved the book from the recycling pile and brought it back to life (not pristine mind you!) - and there is nothing more satisfying in doing that to a book! Carlo Collodi's Victorian story (it was first published in book form in 1883) is well known and revolves around a humble woodcarver Geppetto who often worked late into the night in his workshop. He shared his workshop with his pet cat Figaro and his pet goldfish called Cleo. He would chat to his two pets and he was telling them that he was making a plaything fit for the stocking of a prince - it was a puppet. But it was no ordinary puppet for although he had a cute round face of a small boy, Geppetto had given him a very long and pointed nose. In making the puppet Geppetto was watched by a wayfarer who had popped into the workshop having seen smoke coming out of the chimney and he had said to himself, 'Where there's smoke, there's a fire. Where there's a fire there's a hearth. And where there's a hearth, there should be a cricket!' For the wayfarer was exactly that, a cricket, by name Jiminy Cricket. Once Geppetto had finished his puppet, he named him Pinocchio and he played with him and made him dance by working his strings. When his amusement was over he put Pinocchio down and retired to bed, wishing that Pinocchio was a real person. It was then that Jiminy Cricket, impressed by Pinocchio's little dance, addressed Figaro and Cleo with 'Look at him Figaro. He seems almost real. Wouldn't it be nice if he were alive?' Jiminy looked out of the window and saw the Evening Star, which Geppetto called The Wishing Star. And that is what it turned out to be for later that evening it floated down into the workshop and manifested itself in the form of a fairy. She decided that Geppetto had given so much joy to others by his work that she raised her wand and said, 'Little puppet made of pine, Wake! The gift of life is thine!' Pinocchio was told that in life he had to choose between right and wrong and the fairy told him that his conscience would tell him the difference between the two. Pinocchio did not know what a conscience was so the fairy, having explained, made Jiminy his conscience; 'Lord High Keeper of the Knowledge of Right and Wrong! Arise - Sir Jiminy Cricket!' she said. Later in the evening Geppetto was woken by a noise and he discovered that Pinocchio could talk. 'What! You're talking?' he cried. 'No! You're only a marionette. You can't talk!' But he discovered that Pinocchio could talk and the next morning he packed him off to school with advice to choose his friends carefully. Unfortunately Pinocchio did not do so, he was too naïve and he ended up in all sorts of trouble through mixing with the wrong sort of folk. He encountered a sharp-eyed fox, by name J Worthington Foulfellow, alias Honest John, and a rather stupid cat called Gideon. The pair led him astray, despite entreaties from Jiminy, and sold him to Stromboli's Marionette Show. He had many awful adventures with Stromboli before eventually getting away. But Foulfellow and Gideon found him again and took him to Pleasure Island, once again much against the wishes of Jiminy. At Pleasure Island he met another crook called Lampwick and eventually he got turned into a donkey, developing donkey ears and a tail. By this time Geppetto, worried as to his whereabouts, writes a letter to Pinocchio after he had heard that he was at Pleasure Island. Jiminy discovered the letter and related its contents to Pinocchio who learned that Geppetto had made attempts to find him but had met with disaster, being swallowed by a whale, by name Monstro. Pinocchio was upset and was desperate to locate Monstro and exciting times follow as he endeavours to do so. After many a hair-raising experience, Geppetto, Pinocchio, Figaro and Cleo plus Jiminy manage to engineer a sneeze from Monstro and they were shot out into the ocean. But Pinocchio was pale and lifeless and Geppetto was distraught. Nevertheless they made their way home where, miraculously, Pinocchio stirred and was alive once more. Geppetto was so delighted he started all his clocks and played his music box while Figaro turned somersaults, Cleo raced madly about her bowl, Pinocchio played with his toys and Jiminy was the happiest and proudest of them all. This is a delightful version of the classic and even brings back childhood memories of the film (on its later re-release of course!) with the words of two memorable songs, 'Give a little whistle' and 'I've no string to hold me down ... There are no strings on me'. The book was well worth the effort in painstakingly repairing it!

    This is really cute and the perfect length for an extended bedtime story. Disney’s version has the general gist of Collodi’s story while playing up the parts that children will enjoy best from the whale to the Blue Fairy to Pleasure Island. The pictures, taken from the Dinsey movie, are bright and colourful and there isn’t too much text on each page which holds the little kids’ interest. The story does skip from one thing to another a bit quickly but it works for children. It starts off simply w This is really cute and the perfect length for an extended bedtime story.

It starts off simply with Geppetto wishing that the puppet he created could turn into a real boy, the Blue Fairy turns up and grants him his wish with the proviso that Pinocchio has to prove himself before he can be a real boy, the crazy adventures start, Pinocchio’s nose grows when he lies and finally he does something selfless and can be a real boy. Lots of things to highlight for children here too: the importance of going to school, telling the truth and the good feeling you get from helping people. An enjoyable read overall with a message.

    The book focus on a couple of adventures of Pinocchio and includes some of the most important characters from the original book of Collodi. “Once upon a time there was a carpenter called Geppetto”. Geppetto lives with his cat Figaro, fish Cleo and the talking cricket. Geppetto is overwhelmed when his puppet called Pinocchio becomes a real boy.

One day Pinocchio goes out to do some shopping but gets persuaded by Lucignolo to use the money (Geppetto gave him)to buy cakes instead of food . When Pinocchio is asked by the shop assistant if the money was for the cakes he lies and his nose starts to grow. Later, he encounters the dishonest fox and cat who convince him to go to the puppet show where he meets the master Mangiafuoco. Mangiafuoco captures him but Pinocchio frees himself and he is finally reunited with his dad Geppetto. The story of Pinocchio is great for children as it helps them appreciate values such as honesty and love. Pinocchio is a naughty child and lies because he does not want to be told off - his nose grows, anytime he says a lie. The language (Italian) is simple and accessible. Children (with Italian) from the age of 5 would be able to understand and enjoy this book. It can also be read to children with no Italian as the book has a lot of colourful illustrations and the adventures are short and easy to understand. I love the choice of the characters: the fairy, Mangiafuoco and “ Grillo Parlante” (talking cricket). Children can be encouraged to write about these characters or draw pictures of them.

    This book was ok. It was short and a very easy read. The book covered the entire movie and was pretty much just a detailed summary of everything that happened in the movie. There was a little more of the dialogue from the movie which a lot of books like these don't have so that was nice. The pictures were taken right from the movie so that was also great. I thought it seemed a little dry and needed some extra detail to bring out the emotion felt in the movie. Fans of Disney and Pinocchio will pr This book was ok. It was short and a very easy read.

    A beautifully put-together volume that retells the Disney version of the Pinocchio story in a children's book format. The illustrations do a good job of capturing the beauty of the movie's animation. Originally intended this as a Little Free Library book, but I think I'm going to hang on to it for a bit.

    Pinocchio is a fantasy book about a doll of a boy that becomes real. Each time he lies, his nose grows. This is a passed down story and also a book that holds a valuable lesson with honesty.

    I've never read the original so I can't compare. My nine year old picked this. She much prefers illustrated books still, but even so, she lost interest after a while. I finished it myself to see what happens. I already knew from ubiquity that Pincchio ends up 'a real boy'. I hadn't picked up that the grasshopper is his conscience. An interesting way to tell a story. The story itself does feel pretty ho-hum though. Reading the original might be different but I have owned a copy since childhood aft I've never read the original so I can't compare. My nine year old picked this.
