Lassie Come-Home was first published in 1938 as a short story, oddly enough, in the US, then in 1940 in its present form. By that time the Depression was over and World War II had broken out. I guess the British public needed a canine heroine more than ever

Lassie Come-Home was first published in 1938 as a short story, oddly enough, in the US, then in 1940 in its present form. I guess the British public needed a canine heroine more than ever. The book's British origin is a little more problematic in my old age than it was in childhood. Because it is set in a (probably fictional) Yorkshire village, Greenall Bridge, the author has the characters sometimes speak in the local dialect.

Grade 2-4?In this lushly illustrated adaptation of Eric Knight's 1938 novel, Wells and Jeffers have combined their talents to produce a book irresistible to lovers of animal stories. Most children are familiar with the tale of how the loyal collie travels over 1,000 miles from northern Scotland to Yorkshire to return to her young friend, Joe.

Pinocchio is an Italian children's book that is well worth reading. I have never read this book until now and had only known it from the Walt Disney movie. As with most films, the book is much better. In this case, it is almost an entirely different story.

The Disney movie makes the story of Pinocchio sound like a whimsical fantasy about a puppet who wants to be a real boy. The film is all about "when you wish upon a star." 

The book, on the other hand, starts with a naughty sentient piece of wood. Gepetto is tricked into taking the wood and making a marionette. Immediately, Pinocchio is alive causing Gepetto heartache and trouble, but the woodcarver still calls Pinocchio his son without hesitation. The story follows Pinocchio from one stubborn and foolish choice after another where he reaps the full consequences of his choices being saved only from death. By the end of the book, Pinocchio learns wisdom and virtue the hard way. When Pinocchio becomes a real boy, it is synonymous with being a well-behaved boy. The Story is about listening to good advice and those who love you.

I read quite a few reviews which criticized this book for being harsh. It is harsh in the way tradition fairy tales are. Magical and arbitrary thing happen to magnify Pinocchio's choices. The consequences of his choices often lead to near death experiences. The characters tell Pinnochio the truth about his behavior without a filter. The message of the book says that even a boy is responsible for his own choices. This is certainly not the popular sentiment today.

I enjoyed this book more than I expected. I also saw layers and layers of wisdom in this spectacular fantasy story. The way the false friends used Pinnochio like a puppet makes sense of what he is versus a real boy. The unconditional love of Gepetto and the fairy show the actions of loving parents. The various adventure translates into the kind of temptations on experiences in life. I believe this would be a good story for children eight years old and older, but they may not grasp the hidden wisdom in the book until much later. Pinocchio is a book well worth reading and rightfully a classic.

A booklist blog that I read recommended this original version of the story of Pinocchio, published in 1883. It's very much different (and better) than the Disney cartoon we all grew up with.
The very first scene had me laughing out loud as Geppetto and a shop owner brawled.
This original version is more graphic and violent than the children's version. For example (spoiler alert!), the talking cricket that Walt Disney lovingly named 'Jiminy' only lasted a page and a half before Pinocchio killed it with a hammer. And in another scene (big spoiler alert!) Pinocchio is hiding four gold pieces in his mouth while the cat and fox try to pry it open with a knife. The puppet bites the cats paw off and spits it on the ground.
There are so many good lessons to be found in this story. Taken as a whole, we see a model of maturity. Pinocchio is a bad boy, but as he goes through life he takes note of the lessons around him. By the end of the book, he's accountable and responsible for caring for his father and the fairy. He does so by working extra hours and earning more money.

DO NOT BUY ISBN 9781490466194 from GraphicEbooks
THIS IS NOT A REAL PUBLISHER.

When you "look inside" the book on Amazon, the preview shows lovely color pictures. The item you receive has horribly photocopied black-and-white images. Plus the text looks "typed" (homemade style) instead of looking professionally produced by a legitimate publisher.
Last but not least, there are enormous blank spaces all over... I've never seen such a thing in my life! See my photos here attached.

Collodi's Pinocchio is a wonderful classic: my review is AGAINST THIS EDITION OF THE BOOK not against the story itself or its author.

I will return it immediately.

This is my second copy of this book; I love the artwork that much! I'll put it aside for that 'special' child as a gift. If you're planning to read this to a young child as a bedtime story, give yourself plenty of time or read in two parts. It's long - it takes about one hour to read this book aloud. You will run the entire emotional roller coaster as Lassie makes her back to the people she loves - such a looong journey with many perils.

As a child, I got so emotionally invested in Lassie the TV show. If she was limping, I was crying. My mother caught on to my suffering and would send me to the basement to retrieve the clothes from the dryer. By the time I returned Lassie would be out of danger/nursed back to health/found by Timmy, etc. Our family always had a dog but never a collie. As times changed, the later dogs became indoor dogs. There's one beside me right now.

I firmly believe that stories like this teach children empathy and compassion. This world could use more of both.

This is my first reading of the real Pinocchio. I'm reading it aloud to my kids and I have to say I often find myself cracking up at the irony and whit of this book! Not only is it a clever story & well written but the underlying wisdom is absolutely timeless and relevant for our day. My kids are literally yelling out loud to Pinocchio or slapping their foreheads every time he makes another poor choice they are so frustrated with him. It's so great! Makes for wonderful discussion as well. Highly recommend!!

I love the concept of reading original texts, especially of classic stories. However, like a lot of classic fairy tales, this gets a bit dark and gritty. My kids (7 and 4) were troubled to the point of tears. Mom fail. I ended up editing a lot as I read aloud to them to resolve the drama and get through the storyline. Later I found an adaptation that I really liked better for them at their ages. Maybe when they are older, we will revisit the book and they'll appreciate more of the author's cleverness.
