To be a real boy -- that is the heart's desire of the little wooden puppet carved by the old and sprightly Geppeto. Naughty, mischevious, and bold, Pinocchio sets off on adventures and gets into trouble -- but to achieve his desire, he will have to face many challenges and learn some very important lessons. Emma Rose's superb new translation is matched by Fanelli's playful illustrations in this unique edition of Carlo Collodi's 1883 classic.
Now in paperback -- Idiosyncratic inventive multimedia collages by the acclaimed Sara Fanelli and a clever, authentic translation make an absolutely arresting edition of Collodiís classic, picaresque tale. (Age 7 and up)
