Editorial Reviews

In this children's favorite, Geppetto, a modest woodcarver, carves a puppet out of a magical piece of wood. The man is surprised to find that his wooden puppet, Pinocchio, can speak, dance, and get himself in trouble. Pinocchio is the story of a puppet and his misadventures as he learns to become a good human boy.

Donal Donnelly's performance enhances the charming quality of this story, bringing to life the many voices and characters. Donnelly's voice ranges in emotion and pitch, giving this enduring classic a fresh sound.

Publisher's Summary

When Geppetto, a humble cobbler with a loyal heart, carves a little puppet from a piece of talking wood, little does he know what he's getting into! Pinocchio, the puppet come to life, has a mind of his own and a determination to go his own way. Pinocchio's many misadventures and escapades serve to teach him right from wrong - and the particular dangers of telling lies! - and have amused and entertained generations of children. Skillfully narrated by Donal Donnelly, this unabridged edition is sure to provide a fresh experience of a beloved classic.

Critic Reviews

"Carlo Collodi's classic Pinocchio comes to life again...The advantage of having an unabridged audio format is the ability to appreciate Collodi's subtle nuances and Pinocchio's extensive adventures." (Bookwatch)

Great Unabridged Version

Love it! My kids are loving this version too. The unabridged version is so much better than the Disney movie and worth the read.

Not Disney!

Think you know the story? You're probably wrong. What a fantastic tale! Disney should be flogged for dumbing down this wonderful and educational warning tale.
