An alternative version to Pinocchio. In this one he continuously picks his nose. His friend Mr Cricket helps him learn that blowing is much more fun.

This is not for everyone as it is a story about Pinocchio picking his nose, but it is wood boogers and it's pretty funny when he tells a lie and his nose grows so fast it takes off his arm or the time he pushes the cricket up his nose. I like the twist even though its sort of gross. Some kids were laughing so hard they were rolling on the ground. Or they were rolling on the ground in embarrassment.

I really wanted to like this, but I felt like the jokes fell pretty flat. Very good for a specific need, though.

My kids liked this book, but I didn't. It was hard to read without wanting to vomit--which would have been okay if it had had the same effect on my kids and deterred them from nose-picking, but they didn't seem to pick up on how gross it is.

Funny spin to the Pinocchio story because Pinocchio wouldn't stop lying and picking his nose.
