The Adventures of Pinocchio
by Carlo Collodi
My only knowledge of Pinocchio was the Disney version until I happened across this book. Pinocchio is so much more. The author was a satirist and the original story was written in installments for the newspaper. It holds much for both adults and children. I learned more of the blue fairy and met new characters as Pinocchio journeyed to becoming a human boy. There was much for Pinocchio to learn just as there is much for you and I to learn. This was an interesting and fun read.
