This was Isaiah's first real novel (read aloud), & he was engrossed from beginning to end. I was surprised at how much he understood (everything) & how long the story kept his attention (50-100+ pages in one sitting). After we finished the book I let him watch Disney's animated version & he was excited to tell me all the ways the stories were the same and different. Not bad for a four-year-old! I can see that this book wouldn't be for everyone, but I thought it was delightful. Isaiah really related to the boy puppet right now, for he too is always promising to "be good" & yet, is easily tempted...The version we read had the original illustrations, which we also loved! They aren't Disney, but that was good, because it helped Isaiah see this book as its own story.
