This recording has been abridged from a translation of the original text, which was first published in 1883. It remains faithful to the book from which Walt Disney adapted his famous animated version.

This book is NOT the Disney movie. If you are expecting the familiar story you watched as a child you will be surprised. I like the original a lot, but it is a bit preachy. Every time Pinoccio does something wrong something dreadful happens to him. When he finally does something good (begins working sixteen hour days making baskets to support his Father and 'Mother') he becomes a real boy. Anyway, kids will probably still enjoy the book.
The reader has a good voice. My sister didn't think so though, so opinions vary. Hope you enjoy it.
