Pinocchio is the best puppet story ever. Listeners will quickly be caught up in Carlo Collodi's impish creation as they are swept along at an action-packed pace. From the day when Geppetto first carves Pinocchio from a piece of wood to the final happy ending - with many exciting and dangerous adventures along the way - Pinocchio will charm and captivate. The story also has a strong moral throughout, which is as suitable for children (and adults!) today as when the original book was written.

This recording has been abridged from a translation of the original text, which was first published in 1883. It remains faithful to the book from which Walt Disney adapted his famous animated version.

    " Very morbid children's tale. Although I had to read this for class, I expected to be entertained by what I had hoped to be an exciting book. My expectations failed me as I found myself getting more and more bored by Pinnochio's journey. Recommendation: Just watch the movie. It's ten times better. "

    " This is not the disney fairy tale but the original with sex, and violence, and weirdness. Sooo... much better! The Disney version is from excerpts of three of the chapters I suppose... "

Carlo Collodi (1826–1890) was the pen name of Carlo Lorenzini, an Italian journalist born in Florence.
