Pinocchio

Pinocchio

Author: Carlo Collodi Narrator: Simon Hester Release Date: 01/07/2021

It may be that we are too sophisticated in this day and age for as simple a morality tale as Carlo Collodi’s “Pinocchio”. It is certainly true that the original tale is much darker in its tone than the later versions which smooth out some of sharper edges of the narrative.  Pinocchio himself is at first a very unlikeable character; he feels only for himself, and his apparent remorse is only self-pity. His creator, Geppetto, is initially a reluctant father figure to the self-centred marionette, and the lessons that Pinocchio must endure in order to gain boyhood are often harsh. In this classic tale, Pinocchio, through his many adventures, learns that the virtues of hard work and study, obedience to one’s parents, politeness and generosity are are the only true path to becoming a real boy. Narrated by Simon Hester. Original music by Simon Hester.

Pinocchio

Author: Carlo Collodi Narrator: Edoardo Ballerini Release Date: 01/05/2021

The tale of Pinocchio is one of the most ingenious growing-up stories ever told. Pinocchio's desire to be a boy is almost thwarted by his desire for mischief. Were it not for the good-natured Geppetto, the Blue Fairy, that 'miserable croaker' the cricket, and many others Pinocchio would be a story of dreams that don't materialize. However, Pinocchio's story is a happy one. Children and adults will find in Carlo Collodi's timeless classic plenty to admire, to learn, but mostly to delight in.

The Adventures of Pinocchio: The Tale of a Puppet

Author: Carlo Collodi Narrator: Lesa Lockford Release Date: 01/03/2021

When the gentle woodcarver Geppetto builds a marionette, Pinocchio, to be his son, a fairy brings the toy to life. But Pinocchio is not yet a human boy. He must earn the right by proving that he is brave, truthful, and unselfish. But even with the help of Jiminy, a cricket who the fairy assigns to be his conscience, Pinocchio goes astray. He joins a puppet show instead of going to school, he lies instead of telling the truth, and he travels to Pleasure Island instead of going straight home. An astonishing work of fantasy, this beloved classic was first published in 1883 and was brought to life by Walt Disney in 1940.

Pinocchio in Easy Italian

Author: Carlo Collodi, Jacopo Gorini Narrator: Jacopo Gorini Release Date: 01/05/2020

Pinocchio is a fictional character and the protagonist of the children's novel The Adventures of Pinocchio (1883) by Italian writer Carlo Collodi of Florence, Tuscany. Pinocchio was carved by a woodcarver named Geppetto in a Tuscan village. He was created as a wooden puppet but he dreams of becoming a real boy. He is notably characterized for his frequent tendency to lie, which causes his nose to grow. Pinocchio is a cultural icon. He is one of the most reimagined characters in children's literature. The origin of the name Pinocchio is uncertain; it may be related to the word pino (pine), as the puppet is made of wood, in the diminutive Tuscan form pinocchio (hence equivalent to 'little piney') – the author used Florentine dialect frequently in the book – and is also similar to Pino, a nickname for Giuseppe (the Italian form of Joseph), of which Geppetto (the name of Pinocchio's maker) is also a nickname (hence equivalent to 'little Joey').

The Adventures of Pinocchio

The Adventures of Pinocchio

Author: Carlo Collodi Narrator: Mark F. Smith Release Date: 01/05/2020

The Adventures of Pinocchio (Italian: Le avventure di Pinocchio), also simply known as Pinocchio, is a novel for children by Italian author Carlo Collodi, written in Pescia. It is about the mischievous adventures of an animated marionette named Pinocchio and his father, a poor woodcarver named Geppetto. It was originally published in a serial form as The Story of a Puppet (Italian: La storia di un burattino) in the Giornale per i bambini, one of the earliest Italian weekly magazines for children, starting from 7 July 1881. The story stopped after nearly 4 months and 8 episodes at Chapter 15, but by popular demand from readers, the episodes were resumed on 16 February 1882. In February 1883, the story was published in a single book. Since then, the spread of Pinocchio on the main markets for children's books of the time has been continuous and uninterrupted, and it was met with enthusiastic reviews worldwide. A universal icon and a metaphor of the human condition, the book is considered a canonical piece of children's literature and has had great impact on world culture. Philosopher Benedetto Croce reputed it as one of the greatest works of Italian literature. Since its first publication, it has inspired hundreds of new editions, stage plays, merchandising, television series and movies, such as Walt Disney's iconic animated version, and commonplace ideas such as a liar's long nose. According to extensive research done by the Fondazione Nazionale Carlo Collodi in the late 1990s and based on UNESCO sources, the book has been adapted in over 260 languages worldwide, while as of 2018 it has been translated into over 300 languages. That makes it the most translated non-religious book in the world and one of the best-selling books ever published, with over 80 million copies sold in recent years. According to Francelia Butler, it remains 'the most translated Italian book and, after the Bible, the most widely read'.
