Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Now in paperback — Idiosyncratic collages by the acclaimed Sara Fanelli and a clever, authentic translation make this slipcased PINOCCHIO a must-have for collectors of all ages.

To be a real boy — that is the heart's desire of the little wooden puppet carved by the old and sprightly Geppeto. Naughty, mischevious, and bold, Pinocchio sets off on adventures and gets into trouble — but to achieve his desire, he will have to face many challenges and learn some very important lessons. Emma Rose's superb new translation is matched by Fanelli's playful illustrations in this unique edition of Carlo Collodi's 1883 classic.

About the Author

Carlo Collodi was the pen name of Italian journalist and author Carlo Lorenzini (1826-1890). PINOCCHIO was Collodis first fiction for children (though he had translated fairy tales before), and it first appeared as a serialization in an Italian newspaper. The Pinocchio adventures were finally collected together in book form in 1883, just seven years before Collodis death. The book was an instant success.

Sara Fanelli is one of the worlds most distinctive picture book creators. Born and raised in Florence, Italy, she now lives in London but often travels between the two cities. Sara Fanelli is the author-illustrator of MYTHOLOGICAL MONSTERS OF ANCIENT GREECE and the picture book DEAR DIARY, which received an Honorable Mention from the 2001 Bologna Ragazzi Award Jury.
