The original, unabridged Pinocchio in a beautifully illustrated hardcover edition.
Carlo Collodiís 1883 story is an astonishing work of fantasy, even richer and more wildly imaginative than the famous film that Disney made of it. The Everymanís editionóthe only one in hardcoveróbrings back the color-illustrated translation of 1916 that captures the vivid inventiveness of Collodiís original. Here is the endearing wooden puppet, always dreaming of becoming a boy and always tumbling into trouble: kidnapped, robbed by a cat and a fox, turned into a donkey, escaping from an enormous smoking serpent and a green-skinned ogre, rescuing his father from the belly of a mile-long fish, haunted by the ghost of a talking cricket, watched over by a fairy with turquoise hair, and, time and again, betrayed by his lie-sensitive nose.
Carlo Collodi (Carlo Lorenzini, 1826Ė90) was a journalist from Florence who took part in Italyís struggle for independence and died too soon to witness the international success of his childrenís book.
