it was ok

I don't think this one deserves as much praise as it gets. Don't get me wrong, I'm glad I read it and it was entertaining as far as children's liturature, but there are so many other books that fall into that genre that also transend it and are able to entertain adults. I felt like this story was really just ment for a parent to read to there child while shaking their finger, furrowing their brow, and telling them that they better pay attention otherwise they are going to turn into a donkey just like the marionette.

It was fantastical and humorous at times, but also very jaunting and disconnected between chapters (it may have something to do with the translation I read). All and all, Pinocchio was a braty little b!tch.
