The Lovereading4Kids comment
Pinocchio is the classic story of the little wooden puppet who longs to become a human boy and strives to achieve his ambition.
Pinocchio is a delightful character who is full of both humour and pathos. He has the unfortunate characteristic that every time he lies or does something naughty – which he does frequently – his nose grows longer and longer. Pinocchio and his maker, the poor woodcarver Geppetto, have a touching father-son relationship full of love and tenderness.
Fulvio Testa’s illustrations capture the jaunty tone of the story as well as bringing the interesting cast of characters to life.
Pinocchio by Carlo Collodi
Pinocchio, a little wooden puppet carved out of a piece of wood by the old carpenter Geppetto, longs to be a real boy. But Pinocchio has a lot to learn as he embarks on many naughty, mischievous and challenging adventures, before he can truly become a good little boy.
Each reading of Fulvio Testa's books will reveal something new. --
