Review:


"Alternating between panels and full- and double-page scenes whose bright, bleeding colors evoke tie-dyed fabrics, Sanna shows the proto-Pinocchio gathering companions and confronting a forest of trees and fire, a ravenous snake, and an enormous shark, before growing into a tree. It’s a haunting and wholly original perspective on Collodi’s classic that suggests that Pinocchio’s mischievous spirit draws from a primordial, even immortal, source of energy." -- STARRED REVIEW, Publishers Weekly

"In the mostly wordless pages of “ Pinocchio: The Origin Story” (Enchanted Lion, 48 pages, $19.95), exquisite paintings by the Italian watercolorist Alessandro Sanna depict a series of mystical events that produced the bit of wood that the woodcarver Geppetto would eventually fashion into a marionette―which became a real boy―in Carlo Collodi’s 1883 story “Pinocchio.” [...] Powerful and strange, this picture book invites contemplation...." -- Meghan Cox Gurdon, The Wall Street Journal
