Overview

The Adventures of Pinocchio by Carlo Collodi, Roberto Innocenti

A timeless tale of adventure, heart, mischief, and family, Pinocchio is one of the most renowned children's books of all time. Since its publication in 1881, there have been countless editions of the book. Unlike these editions, most of which feature the work of a single artist, this Classic Illustrated Edition brings together Carlo Collodi's original story and a wondrous collection of illustrations from the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. This extraordinary gallery of images includes the work of Enrico Mazzanti, Carlo Chiostri, Attilio Mussino, Frederick Richarson, and Charles Folkard, making Pinocchio's fantastic encounters and tender moments a truly magical trip that will appeal to book lovers of all ages.

About the Author


Carlo Collodi was born in Florence, Italy in 1826. At the age of 22, he became a journalist to work for the Italian independence struggle and also wrote comedies and edited newspapers and reviews. In 1861, when Italy became a united nation, Collodi gave up journalism and settled down as a theatrical censor and magazine editor. He then turned to children's fantasy, and in 1881 the first chapter of Pinocchio appeared in the Giornale Dei Bambini, and became an immediate success. Collodi died in Florence in 1890. Greg Hildebrandt is a well-known children's book illustrator. He lives in New Jersey.

Parents, if you ever wanted to teach your kids not to lie, this is the book to read to them. If you can convince your children that their nose will grow to an embarrassing length if they lie, and it works, then do it since they'll thank you years later. Also, like Pinocchio, if your child has a dream, tell them that unless they are true to themselves, as in the story, it will never come true.

What a gorgeous read! I laughed so often reading this story and was grateful to have the beautiful illustrations accompanying it. The unabridged version of Pinocchio is a delight. It is a fairy tale with a deep meaning. I am glad that I selected this translation and book. Worth every penny.

First off let me say this is one of the strangest tales I have ever read. It occurs in a strange world where puppets can talk, boys can turn into donkeys, and noses grow bigger when you lie. It is weird because I am usually not a fan of weird books like this but somehow the Adventures of Pinocchio manages to draw you into its world. It has unique characters, a whimisical plot, and a message at the end that can touch even the most sinister of hearts. The only reason I do not give this story a full five stars is because there are a few minor flaws to the story that I did not like. For instance Pinocchio saves the life of a dog and the dog promises him that he will return the favor. Instead of creating suspense with this moment the writer decides to have Pinocchio life be saved two pages after this event occurs. Also, the plot itself can be very confusing sometimes and seem to draw on and on. It is like the writers own insanity ends up catching up with him half the time. Still it is a very warm story and one that you can not help smiling after.
