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.

About the Author

Carlo Collodi
Carlo Lorenzini was born in Florence in 1826, the eldest son of a cook and a servant, and was brought up in the hillside village of Collodi. He began his writing career as a journalist, writing under the pseudonym Carlo Collodi. In 1875 he began writing for children, adapting traditional tales and creating his own stories. When the first chapter of Pinocchio appeared in an Italian newspaper in July 1881 it was an immediate success. Carlo Collodi died in Florence in 1890.
