  1. This is an unique twist of the classic fairy tale “Pinocchio. The characters have feelings, and I can relate to them. The style of his writing did not appeal to me. It felt like I was wading through a thick pudding, it was enjoyable but not interesting. So I say no for Newbery.

  2. It’s an interesting concept, taking a classic like Pinocchio and turning it into a sort of horror-ish-story, but It honestly didn’t appeal to me. I feel like it could be done better. Fantastic idea, but I’ll give it a no.
