Pinocchio (Hardback)

Unavailable. No reason given.


Pinocchio is the riotous, tragicomic tale of the most well-known puppet in fiction. Both mischievous and loving, Pinocchio encounters all manner of unusual and dangerous characters on his adventures and must undergo a series of fiendishly imaginative trials - among them being swallowed by a giant dogfish and turned into a braying donkey - that will lead him to self-knowledge. Along the way he will be helped by a beautiful fairy and his adoring father Gepetto, as he learns how to become what he most longs to be; a real boy. Illustrated by Charles Folkard, with an Afterword by Anna South.

Carlo Corenzini was both in Florence, Italy, in 1826 and worked as a writer and journalist under the pseudonym Carlo Collodi. In addition to being celebrated for his writing he was also known for his active interest in political life and ideas. He first began to engage with a young audience of readers when he published a translation of the French Fairy Tales of Charles Perrault in 1876, and then began work on his most celebrated book, Pinocchio, in 1881. His story of a puppet began life as a series of instalments published in The Children's Magazine before being published as a complete book - with a new ending - in 1883. Corenzini died some seven years later, in 1890, in his home city of Florence.
