The Real Boy: By Anne Ursu
This was a twist on the story of Pinocchio. It was great. I liked how Oscar had no idea that he was not a real boy, and that he figured it out on his own. Oscar was a very difficult character to understand, because he had such limited experiences in the story, that when he was put into situations with other people, he had a really hard time talking with them and interacting with them. I believe that kids will connect with Oscar because he feels like he is really different. This author also wrote Breadcrumbs, which is another great retelling of a fairy tale.
I borrowed this from the public library
