Pinocchio, fairy tales, bedtime stories ( )

This is a book that could've been at least a quirky and funny fairytale. But the constant moral pointers took away any enjoyment that managed to surface. "If only I had been a good boy", and other similar lines, is as frequent as almost every single page in this 220 pages book. It could've easily said everything it wanted to say in a short story format. The only reason I finished this is because I dislike leaving books unfinished. I wouldn't recommend this book. ( )

A great example of a free e-book that is worth reading. Most people only know the story from the Disney film so it so good to see the original. ( )

Great translation of a wonderful story that is as bleak as it is amazing! Who says fairy tales cannot be brutal? Grimm right... ( )

Once upon a time there was...

'A King!' my young readers will instantly exclaim.

No, children, that's where you are wrong. Once upon a time there was a piece of wood.
There once was a piece of wood, lying in the carpenter shop of Master Antonio. Master Antonio decided to make a table leg out of the wood, but to his surprise, when he struck it, the wood cried out. (The Adventures of Pinocchio 2003, illustrated by: Greg Hildebrandt)
