Gr 3–7—Pinocchio has been locked in a trunk and shipped from the emperor's floating palace to a new master, Geppetto, who is an alchemist at odds with the empire. As an automa, Pinocchio must serve without question, but as in the tale of old, Pinocchio is transitioning into a real boy with his own thoughts and feelings. Where will his old loyalties to the empire end and his new allegiance to Geppetto begin? When Prester John, king of Abaton, is captured by the empire, Pinocchio helps his daughter, Princess Lazuli, rescue him. John Lister does a stupendous job reading the story and voicing the varied cast of characters. Music by Vernian Process adds mystery and suspense. In this version, Pinocchio's nose grows when he hurts someone, even if unintentionally, and a musical cricket named Maestro replaces Disney's Jiminy Cricket as Geppetto's companion. VERDICT A delightful purchase for lovers of fantasy. ["A good choice for collections where high fantasy is popular": SLJ 1/16 review of the Hyperion book.]—Mary Lee Bulat, Harwinton Public Library, CT --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
