About this title

Synopsis:

The story of Pinocchio, the puppet who wants to be a real boy, the loving Gepetto, the energetic Talking Cricket, and all the other delightful characters come to life in a beautifully illustrated rendition complete with colorful paper collage artwork.

Review:

The Chinese-American illustrator Ed Young won a Caldecott Medal for his book Lon Po Po: A Red-Riding Hood Story From China. Here he takes on another classic children's tale and transforms it with his collages from cloth, string, grainy paper, and scraps. Pinocchio's often frightening world is rendered in rich color and deep texture, so that the moral of the adventure, that honesty and modesty are the only sources of our humanity, becomes even more powerful. Young has also included some of the darker plot elements that subsequent Disneyfied versions chose to obscure or leave out.
