    " I read this book as a teenager and was so impressed with its depth and complexity that wish that parents would have their children read this full version once they are old enough to understand it. "

    " Written as a long fable and to talk about how young boys make mistakes and the good, moral decisions they should make. An enjoyable read because of the early edition and ink pictures in my copy, but not something I'd necessarily recommend. "

    " i had never seen this edition until it recently came through my bookstore. Ghiuselev's illustrations have a classic feel, even as they are both highly disturbing and beautiful. i had never read Collodi's story before. it is radically different from the versions i heard growing up. Pinocchio is, in many ways, an unsympathetic character as he makes one poor choice after another. but, considering the extreme bad things that befall him, you can't help but identify. the story has its share of moralizing. i can picture generations of mothers using the story to goad children into taking their medicine, etc. the bizarre twists that the plot takes would terrify many children. glad i finally read this classic. "

    " I read this one aloud to my children (7, 12, 14) and we knew it would be different than Disney's version. We were still surprised to see how different. It still has a wooden puppet, a whale, Gepetto and a few other similarities, but I wouldn't recommend it for young readers/listeners! "
