In the retelling of this evergreen tale by Carlo Collodi, narrator Rebecca Reynolds's enchanting voice first introduces listeners to Geppetto, an old carpenter who has always wanted a son. In deep and jolly tones, Gepetto tells stories to the puppet he is carving--and then his project begins speaking to him. The raspy voice soon becomes the boyish, and slightly arrogant, Pinocchio. While the wooden puppet wants to be a good and kind son, he often finds himself in trouble due to his naïveté. Throughout his journey to become a real boy, Pinocchio meets a variety of fairy-tale friends, all whom Reynolds voices expertly. She seamlessly switches between timbres and tempos to lead listeners--and Pinocchio--to a perfect happily-ever-after. V.T. © AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPTEMBER 2020]
