‘The Adventures of Pinocchio’
By Carlo Collodi (Author), Robert Ingpen (Illustrator)
When the old woodcarver Geppetto carves a puppet out of a talking piece of wood, his creation can dance, sing, and do somersaults—but is also very naughty and disobedient. Carlo Collodi's classic story of a puppet who dreams of becoming a boy—and his incredible adventures—gets an enchanting treatment from award-winning artist Robert Ingpen. This beautiful entry in the popular Sterling Illustrated Classics series captures all the magic of the original. This is not the Disney version which has changed the plot and the original moral of the story. Ages 9-14.
‘This promises to reach a wide age range; from the advanced elementary audience it intends to reach in over 200 pages peppered with black and white drawings into middle school levels. Collodi's classic story of a naughty puppet come to life is a fine tale which deserves the attention of new audiences.’
