Marathon County Public Library MCPL's Reviews > Wooden Bones
by Scott William Carter (Goodreads Author)
bookshelves: childrens, mcpl-review, childrens-featured
Since changing into a real boy, Pino discovers that being human is much more complicated than he observed when he was a wooden puppet. He loves his quiet life with his father Geppetto in the woodshop, but when carves a wooden puppet replica of Geppetto’s dead wife and discovers that he can magically bring her to life, their lives become irrevocably changed. They are forced to move from town to town to avoid the mad crowds of people who demand that they use (or misuse) their powers to fulfill their demands. This bizarre, interesting twist to the familiar Pinocchio fairytale is a quick, interesting read that tweens and adults will definitely enjoy.
