9780142437063: Pinocchio (Penguin Classics)

This well-known fairy tale follows the adventures of a mischievous puppet without strings, Pinocchio. Pinocchio is at once a tragicomic character, and a poor, illiterate peasant boy who has few choices in life but usually chooses to shirk his responsibilities.

In his compelling introduction, Jack Zipes discusses 'Pinocchio' in the contexts of the folk tale and the literary fairy tale, showing how Collodi subverts these traditions and raising questions about how we ''civilise'' children inuncivilised times.

Review:

"Fulvio Testa's illustrations capture the jaunty tone of the storytelling." (Julia Eccleshare Guardian, Best Children's Books for Christmas 2012)

"A stunning new edition. The illustrations will have you transfixed . . . It would make a lovely present." (Angels & Urchins)

"Vivid illustrations...a huge cast of colourful characters. They make the Disney images look very wooden." (Books for Keeps)

"Handsomely produced volume." (Irish Times)

Book Description:

This stunning edition of the classic Pinocchio, illustrated by the internationally revered artist Fulvio Testa, will make a fantastic gift.
