Publisher Comments:

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."

Synopsis:

This is the classical tale of the mischievous puppet who longs to be a flesh-and-blood little boy. Carlo Collodi was the pseudonym of Italian journalist Carlo Lorenzini (1826-1890) who wrote didactic tales for children, the most famous being this ageless story, first published in 1883.

Synopsis:

This edition of "Pinocchio" - the tragi-comic tale of a mischievious puppet - includes illustrations from the 19th and early 20th centuries. It puts the story in context with an introduction exploring its main theme - the "civilizing" of children in uncivilized times.

About the Author

Carlo Collodi (1826-1890) was the pen name of Carlo Lorenzini, an Italian journalist born in Florence. Collodi's life and writings were dedicated to the Italian liberation movement to free the country from Austrian domination and establish a national identity. In 1875, Collodi put aside his political struggles and turned to a new interest: writing for children.
