Forget everything you learned about Pinocchio from the Disney movie. Pinocchio is bad. He lies. He cheats. He steals. And he enjoys doing bad things. He is repentant only when he is about to be severely punished and as soon as the punishment is removed, he goes right back to being bad.He cares about his father. He cares about the blue fairy. These are his only redeeming qualities. But they are enough. A book that is full of action and adventures. And it is also so fun to read.
