Pinocchio by Carlo Collodi
My son Laurence and I have been reading Pinocchio together and I, and have just finished it this afternoon. AS such, we're going to write this review together. After each question, I will put my answer, and Laurence's answer:
Who was the funniest person in Pinocchio?
L: The funniest person was the fox, because I like it when, at the end, he's shouting that he's really poor now.
J: I thought the funniest person was the Snail, because she was soooooo sloooooooooow and we reeeeeaaaaaaaadddddd heeeeeeerrrrrrrrr vooooooiiiiiiiiicccccceeeee llllliiiiiiikkkkkkkeeeeee tttttthhhhhhhhiiiiiissss...
What was the saddest part of the book?
L: AT the end of the story where Candlewick died, because I liked Candlewick because he wanted Pinocchio to come with him to the Land of Boobies.
J: I thought the saddest part was when Pinocchio went to the fairy-with-the-blue-hair's house, and saw the sign saying she was dead.
What was the happiest part of the book?
L: When Pinocchio gets out of the dogfish's mouth, because the dogfish was really bad, and he escaped from it.
J: I thought it was wonderful when the fairy came to Pinocchio's dreams, and told him he was a good boy now.
Do you ever act like Pinocchio? How can you learn to be good like Pinocchio did?
L: No! Well, sometimes. I can learn to be good by going to school and obeying my parents, and listening to my mama and dad.
J: Way more often than I should. I find constant beatings are helpful. Just kidding!
(Laurence's Question:) Why do you think the Fox and Cat decide to be assassins?
L: Because they want to steal people's money
J: Because, when they are dressed as assassins, noone can tell who they are. People who are being wicked try to be sneaky. When people are being good, they don't need to tell lies.
Laurence's rating: Holy Donkeys!
