Rate this:
Pinocchio is up to mischief from the day his father, Geppetto, first carves him out a piece of wood. He refuses to listen to anyone's advice, and because he doesn't, he is tricked and cheated, turned into a donkey, and even swallowed by a whale!
When he tells lies, his nose gets longer and longer. But Pinocchio does try to be good and knows that if he is, he will be granted his dearest wish -- to be turned into a real little boy. But can Pinocchio keep out of trouble for that long...?
In this new version of Carlo Collodi's classic tale, freshly translated from the Italian, James Riordan has taken the original, serialized story and retold it in longer sections, a new approach which gives the book an exciting pace and fluency. The illustrations are by the distinguished artist Victor G. Ambrus. His lively pictures, in color and black-and-white, bring out the humor and character of the story.
