Description

The automa Pinocchio has always been duty-bound to serve in the floating palace of Venice's emperor. So when Pinocchio finds himself locked in a trunk and delivered to a new master-a wanted criminal and alchemist named Geppetto-he is curious about everything around him. But most curious is the way Pinocchio seems to be changing from a wooden servant into a living, human boy. Before Geppetto and Pinocchio can uncover the mystery surrounding the automa's transformation, Pinocchio is stolen away. Determined to find Geppetto again, Pinocchio begins a harrowing journey across the Empire, where danger in the form of half-beast outlaws and winged airmen abounds for a lost automa.

Professional reviews

"Bemis's wonderful steampunk version of "Pinocchio" is elevated far above the ordinary by Ralph Lister's incomparable narration and the story's accompanying music and sound effects. Lister's handling of each character transition is seamless. Pinocchio, a young automa, is taken from the Venetian palace and sent to the fugitive alchemist Gepetto. As he bonds with his new master, Pinocchio begins his transformation into a living, thinking boy whose voice is at first timid and then confident as he adjusts to the new experience of having feelings. The music swells at each story revelation, and background sounds match each scene perfectly. When underground, there is the subtle drip of water; outside, the heavy beats of the winged lions and marching soldiers. A truly outstanding production. M.F.T. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine"
