Description

Pinocchio is a marionette who aspires to be a real boy but encounters a series of moral dilemmas that keep him from reaching his goals. This classic tale is an unconventional hero’s journey, highlighting the importance of integrity and discipline in a world filled with distractions.

Geppetto is an elderly and impoverished carpenter who’s gifted with an enchanted piece of wood. He uses it to create a marionette, which he fashions after a young boy, calling him Pinocchio. He quickly learns that Pinocchio can walk, talk and has a brash attitude. His most distinguished feature is his nose, which is prompted to grow whenever the puppet tells a lie. As Pinocchio explores his surroundings, he encounters various characters who attempt to show him the error of his ways.

The Adventures of Pinocchio is one of the most famous books in the world. It’s been translated into over 300 languages, selling more than 80 million copies. Its most popular adaptation came in 1940 with the Disney animated film, Pinocchio. Despite the many interpretations, the original maintains the story’s core values with greater nuance and depth.

With an eye-catching new cover, and professionally typeset manuscript, this edition of The Adventures of Pinocchio is both modern and readable.
