Overview

Once there was a lonely woodcutter named Geppetto-who dreamed of having a boy of his own. So one day he carved a boy out of wood and named him Pinocchio.

When the puppet comes to life, it's Geppetto's dream come true.

Except Pinocchio turns out to be not such a nice boy after all. Pinocchio enjoys nothing better than creating mischief and playing mean tricks. As he discovers, being bad is much more fun than being good.

For a while, anyway.

Happily for Pinocchio, he will learn that there is much more to being a real boy than having fun.

A magical tale that has entertained children of all ages for more than a hundred years, this lavishly and gorgeously illustrated new edition is the perfect introduction of a timeless classic to a new generation of readers.

And that's no lie!

Author Biography: CARLO COLLODI is the pen name of Carlo Lorenzini. Born in 1826, he worked as a journalist before publishing The Adventures of Pinocchio in 1883. Translated into more than ninety languages, Pinocchio has never been out of print.

I took turns reading pages with my 7 year old granddaughter. The vocabulary was challenging and the lessons the story taught about having a good work ethic, being self-motivated, and telling the truth were really well done. This version isn't the Disney version. It teaches in depth lessons and has good questions at the end of the book to reinforce values. I was pleasantly surprised how much I enjoyed the story and more importantly my granddaughter really enjoyed the book.
