The Lovereading4Kids comment

The classic story of the little wooden boy whose nose grows with every lie he tells is beautifully presented in this handsome edition. Geppetto, Pinocchio’s creator loves the little boy dearly but somehow Pinocchio can never live up to his father’s hopes. He can’t keep out of trouble mostly, for the likeable reason, that he longs to have fun. Roberto Innocenti has added some illustrations to the original set he provided for this book adding to the rich background world of the unlikely hero.

Philip Pullman: "What effortless invention looks like."


The Good Book Guide logo The Good Book Guide Review. A splendidly illustrated and excellently produced new edition of the humorous yet poignant story of the puppet Pinocchio who, though made of wood, has a mind bent on mischief. The copious illustrations, grainy and thick with paint, are admirable.

Synopsis

The Adventures of Pinocchio by Carlo Collodi

Pinocchio, the wayward puppet, finds it almost impossible to be the good, loving son he wishes to be. The Blue Fairy promises to grant his wish if he can prove that he is brave, loyal and honest. But Pinocchio loves having fun and he's easily tempted into making the wrong choices. Will he ever learn the difference between good and bad?

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.
