Meet the Author

Carlo Collodi was the pen name of Italian journalist and author Carlo Lorenzini (1826-1890). PINOCCHIO was Collodi’s first fiction for children (though he had translated fairy tales before), and it first appeared as a serialization in an Italian newspaper. The Pinocchio adventures were finally collected together in book form in 1883, just seven years before Collodi’s death. The book was an instant success.

Sara Fanelli is one of the world’s most distinctive picture book creators. Born and raised in Florence, Italy, she now lives in London but often travels between the two cities. Sara Fanelli is the author-illustrator of MYTHOLOGICAL MONSTERS OF ANCIENT GREECE and the picture book DEAR DIARY, which received an Honorable Mention from the 2001 Bologna Ragazzi Award Jury.
