Wooden Bones by Scott William Carter

Cover Illustration by Edward Kinsella

There's a new Pinocchio book on the way and it's definitely on the dark side. The book is aimed at 9-12 year olds but, as author Scott William Carter says, he hopes adults will enjoy it as much as they did Coraline, which is of a similar ilk.
“The untold story of Pinocchio, with a dark twist. Pino, as he’s come to be known after he became a real boy, has discovered that he has the power to bring puppets to life himself...”

 Although it's not out till August 2012, it's already available on for pre-order. This author has been very prolific in the fantasy short story market. (You may have read his short story"Heart of Stone" from Hags, Sirens and Other Bad Girls of Fantasy.) Wooden Bones is his second novel sold to date and I'm looking forward to seeing what he's done with Pinocchio.
