Synopsis

Pinocchio by Janet Brown

My First Reading Book. This is an illustrated first reading book in a large, fun format - ideal for use in show-and-tell. Janet Brown's fresh and lively storyline is designed to appeal to youngsters, with appropriate vocabulary for those who are learning to read by themselves. Interactive pages and an odd-one-out puzzle at the back of the book encourage literacy and observation. It is an enchanting retelling of a timeless fairy tale, with bright and imaginative paintings by Ken Morton. Gepetto the woodcarver longs to have a son. One day, he makes himself a wooden puppet in the shape of a boy, which he calls Pinocchio. That night, while Gepetto is sleeping, a fairy brings Pinocchio to life. He is still made from wood, but the fairy promises that he can become a boy if he remains honest, brave and unselfish. Will Pinocchio succeed...? This classic story is retold for a new generation. It is illustrated with engaging images throughout, and uses simple vocabulary and familiar language that children can easily follow and enjoy.
