Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

On December 25, a new live-action version of the classic tale Pinocchio, starring and directed by Roberto Benigni, will open in the U.S. Many versions of the original story by Carlo Collodi are already available, but Steerforth Press is issuing a new edition of The Adventures of Pinocchio for the occasion. Fluidly translated from the Italian by Nancy Canepa and sporting stylish line drawings by Carmelo Lettere, this should prove a tasteful alternative to the inevitable tie-in edition, and if prominently displayed could sell well over the holidays. Collodi's witty, satiric tale is much harsher than its Hollywood adaptation, and grownups will appreciate it as much or more than children.

"Canepa's translation, with its sharply comic overtones, reveals the layers of irony in Collodi's work." -- Newsday, November 24, 2002

"Steerforth has now published an excellent new translation of Collodi's text by Nancy Canepa." -- Atlantic Monthly, December 2002

"Thank goodness for Nancy Canepa, who at last gives us a 'Pinocchio' written in graceful and lively English prose." -- New York Times Book Review, November 17, 2002
