What the community says about The Adventures of Pinocchio
- "What can I say? Who doesn't love the classic tale of Pinocchio?! Some of the words are a little dated, being that this was first published in 1901, but don't let that stop you from adding it to your shelf. It is a fun read for all ages. There are a few illustrations as well that are a charming addition to the story."

- "This translation of Pinocchio is lovely. Really! You'll be so surprised if you remember just the old movie version. My Aunt bought this for my daughter on a car trip to soothe her. I sat in the backseat and read the story and we were in awe of the pictures. The message is lovely (really!) and it was such a great gift that my daughter cherished. She studied the pictures and it was a bedtime favorite. "
- "First, don't be fooled, this isn't the Disney version. In fact, forget that version exists - if you show it to your kids after reading them this, they'll be super disappointed. This book may be dated, but it's still great for teaching your kids timeless lessons. The characters are witty and funny, and they get up to great hijinks and raucous adventures. My father read this to me when I was young, covering an adventure a night. I hated Pinocchio at the start, because he was terrible; I grew to love him as he grew to become a real person. It taught me a lot of good life lessons. Now I'm reading it to my own kids, and while it's even older, it's still just as good. John and Sarah love stories where Pinocchio's antics hurt someone, and he manages to make it up to them. They're learning about responsibility and fixing their mistakes. They're learning what it means to be a real person out in the real world. (And they're also learning to read without making a fuss, which I really appreciate.) This is a great book for your kids and I highly recommend it. "
- "The Adventures of Pinocchio is a classic. Beware this is nothing like the Disney version. This is a dark version, it has some good life lessons but is pretty graphic. Pinocchio kills or hurts the :friends" he had in the disney version. This is not good for young children. As an adult I find it a good read "

in What are the best children's books"Everybody knows about the story of Pinocchio. Growing up, every child, was exposed to this story through their parents. Most of the time we're also shown the Disney cartoon of Pinocchio. I decided to grab The Adventures of Pinocchio, a children's novel by Italian author Carlo Collodi. It tells a compilation of stories about Pinocchio's journeys. I love the ink illustrations, they're timeless and classic. I feel these stories are an essential part of the legend of Pinocchio that one must share with one's children. It's a perfect companion piece to the animated movie as well as the handful of other Pinocchio stories."
- "I love this book. There's a reason it has stood the test of time. Actually, a few years ago, this was re-issued by the publisher nyrb and I re-read it then and found it great for adults as well as kids. It had a jacket design that was striking and I looked up the artist, discovering that it was made by a teacher in collaboration with kids who he had assigned to read the book and then make art about it. That made me want to share some version of this book with a kid, and my 7-year old nephew absolutely loved it. Fun to read together!"
