The opening draws you quickly into a story which both children and adults can enjoy. The plot revolves around Pinocchio's quest to become a real boy - a desire which proves to be more complicated than the original Pinocchio story. During an attempt to turn Pinocchio into a real boy, a "transformer" machine malfunctions and although Pinocchio remains a wooden puppet, he acquires racial characteristics of Asian and Black boys. Pinocchio enlists the aid of Merlo, his alien friend. They journey to Martoon, a planet inhabited by Merlo's people - aliens who inflate each time they lie and who have pink and purple stripes - the cause of many wars. (Although all of the aliens have identical stripes, they accuse each other of having stripes "in the wrong order.") This book is both a childrens book and a satire.
I enjoyed the book very much as did my nephew. Rarely have I read a book twice, as I am now doing with Pinocchio and the Dragons of Martoon. I am sure that this book will be turned into a film.
