"Once upon a time there was a piece of wood..." So begins the life of Pinocchio, the puppet who, from the moment he is first carved, gets into mischief. Embarking on a series of amazing adventures, he meets a host of colorful characters the wily Fox and Cat, the mysterious blue Fairy, and the Talking Cricket, whose words of wisdom Pinocchio ignores at his peril... This Young Classic edition helps children come to a fuller understanding of this remarkable take, and to enjoy it both as an exciting adventure story and as a moral fable. Photography sets the scene without intruding on the story, and brings Pinocchio to life for a new generation of children.
