Item Description...
Pinocchio, a wooden puppet full of tricks and mischief, wants more than anything else to become a real boy.

Publishers Description
Pinocchio plays pranks upon the kindly woodcarver Geppetto, is duped by the Fox and the Cat, kills the pedantic Talking Cricket, and narrowly escapes death, with the help of the blue-haired Fairy. A wooden puppet without strings, Pinocchio is a tragicomic figure, a poor, illiterate, naughty peasant boy who has few choices in life but usually chooses to shirk his responsibilities and get into trouble. This sly and imaginative novel, alternately catastrophic and ridiculous, takes Pinocchio from one predicament to the next, and finally to an optimistic, if uncertain, ending. In his compelling introduction, Jack Zipes places Pinocchio within the traditions of the oral folk tale and the literary fairy tale, showing how Collodi subverts those traditions while raising questions about "how we 'civilize' children in uncivilized times."

More About Carlo Collodi, Carlo Colloci, Charles Folkard, M. A. Murray & G. Tassinari

Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Carlo Collodi (1826 1890) was the pen name of Carlo Lorenzini. A volunteer in the Tuscan army during the 1848 and 1860 Italian wars of independence, Collodi founded a satirical weekly, Il Lampione which was suppressed for a time by the Grand Duke of Tuscany and became known as the author of novels, plays, and political sketches. His translation from the French of Charles Perrault s fairy tales came out in 1876, and in 1881 his Storia di un burratino (Story of a Puppet) was published in installments in the Giornale per i bambini, appearing two years later in book form as The Adventures of Pinocchio. Collodi, whose writings include several readers for schoolchildren, died in 1890, unaware of the vast international success that his creation Pinocchio would eventually enjoy.
Fulvio Testa is one of Italy s most distinguished artists and illustrators and has had many exhibitions in the United States and Europe. In addition to his own prizewinning titles, he has illustrated books by authors such as Anthony Burgess and Gianni Rodari.
Umberto Eco is a professor of semiotics at the University of Bologna and the author of numerous works of fiction, literary criticism, and philosophy. His most recent books are On Ugliness and the novel The Prague Cemetery.

He is currently on the faculty of the Programs in Creative Writing and Translation at the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Classic story  Sep 21, 2009
Great story. Way more than what Disney made it out to be. Stuck with me since childhood. I have this Italian cartoon movie from the 70s translated into English. It's more accurate to the book, if you can find it.
Pinocchio was written by a man who knew children  Sep 4, 1999
Carlo Collodi remembered his childhood and realized that children must learn responsibility to truly become people.This is the ultimate lesson the story of Pinocchio teaches-while entertaining at the same time.

Getting Gepetto out of the whale was only the first step in Pinocchio's tranformation.He became a hard worker,working for a farmer whose donkey was ill.(This donkey had been a friend of Pinocchio's,who'd conned him into going to that place where boys became donkeys.)Pinocchio rebuffed the Fox and the Cat,apologized to the Talking Cricket and really helped support Gepetto- and later gave the money he'd been saving to a snail who said that the Fairy with Blue Hair needed money.This proved how changed Pinocchio was because this time selfish intentions were swept away by a wish to help others-instead of the other way around.Pinocchio became a real boy not long afterwards.

Today's society pampers children much much more than Collodi's society did in the mid-19th century.Children are supposed to be nice little boys and girls who only have fun and play with all kinds of toys(and Madison Avenue wants to keep them that way as long as possible).Thus,the Pinocchio story was reconstructed by adapters- including that Walton Dizzy fellow-to fit today's society.But children haven't really changed.Perhaps there is more of a need than ever for them to realize that everything cannot be handed to them on a silver platter.The real Pinocchio should become more well-known again.

To the reader in Wisconsin-this is not our fathers' Pinocchio,alright.This is our great-great-grandfathers' Pinocchio.

This is not your father's Pinocchio.  Aug 23, 1999
I grew up with a sanatized Pinocchio.

Walt Disney had presented a charming little boy, who had a little cricket friend, who learned his lesson and lived happily ever after.

A bit shocking to learn that Pinocchio is a brat.

The story itself is not at all what I expected, having been told for years that "Pinocchio" was a pleasant little tale. There is a dark side to the little wooden puppet -- a selfishness that is not usually portrayed in cartoons.

There is a lesson to be learned here; however, the lesson did not come as I expected it to. The book was definitely worth reading; just be prepared for a Pinocchio of a different color.
