El títere que quería se niño. Uno de los personajes inmortales de la literatura infantil ha sido el muñeco de madera Pinocho, cuyo creador, el italiano Carlo Collodi fue un distinguido representante del romanticismo del siglo XIX, que se distingue por su carácter moralista y educativo, es recordado únicamente por esa historia infantil que ha sido traducida a todos los idiomas y llevado en varias oportunidades al cine. El distinguido actor Carlos Muñoz, estrella del cine, el teatro y la televisión, ha querido rendir homenaje en esta interpretación a su padre, el inolvidable Muñocito, que fue uno de los pioneros del arte de los titiriteros en América.

The puppet that wanted to be a kid. One of the immortal characters of children literature is the wooden toy Pinochio, whose creator, the Italian Carlo Collodi, was a prominent representative of the romanticism of the 19th century, known by his moralist and educational style and remembered only by this children's book which has been translated into most languages and made into several movies. The famed actor Carlos Muñoz, movie, theatre, and TV star wanted, with this interpretation, to honor his father, the unforgettable Muñocito, who was one of the pioneers of the art of the puppeteers in America.

    " 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... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Frightful_elk | 1/22/2014

    " The Bedtime story to end all bedtime stories! Pinnochio is laugh out loud funny and just made to be read out loud. A series of fantastic adventures and dyed in the wool naughtiness and cheekiness...If you have any children to read to... you must read this to them! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Toya | 1/18/2014

    " Awwww what a classic story of a wooden boy who just wants to be accepted I love reading this story as a kid and it never gets old even now! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Laura | 1/13/2014

    " This is my third time reading this book. It is a rare gem that many overlook because of the Disney movie. I highly recommend it to all. It has a lot more in it than the movie covers. It is very symbolic and even terrifying at times...really good stuff...one of my favorites. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nikkik0428 | 1/5/2014

    " Classic movie! I know that your nose really is not going to grow when you lie, but I think that this would show the children that lying really is not something that you should do. I think that it teaches honesty. I think this book would be for 2nd or 3rd graders "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 B. Zedan | 1/3/2014

    " This is a classically Grimm-violent story. It's like a bunch of little vignettes, really. And pleasantly bizarro, just as a kid's tale should be. I like that it opens with a talking piece of wood. No explanations necessary, really. There's just this log that is sentient. Whatevs, am I right? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sunny | 10/24/2013

    " Wonderful to read beyond Disney. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gabriel Valjan | 10/9/2013

    " This review is for the Perella translation which I can't seem to find on GR. The Blue Fairy. Esoteric allegory. Stick of wood as child wanting to be a boy and the boy as an obedient stick of wood we call Citizen. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Erica | 9/18/2013

    " I love this book. If you have seen the Italian version of Pinocchio with Roberto Benini it follows the original text closer than any other attempt I have seen thus far. It had me laughing out loud just imagining what chaos Pinocchio caused in his little world! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Petar | 8/17/2013

    " A quick and entertaining read! Disney it is not. The story is a little darker, a tad zanier, and much more enjoyable than the cartoon version. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Deviant Geek | 7/26/2013

    " full of lessons, humor and adventure "

    " I got a little creeped out during certain times, but it was a... pretty good book. I am getting chills on my back... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ppuput Acclamation | 6/3/2012

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christi | 4/16/2012

    " Cute story about an obnoxious young puppet boy who learns the true values in life we should all be so lucky "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bill | 1/28/2012

    " If you want to see a perfect example of how disney does not represent the original story...here you go... a great read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rana Burr | 1/3/2012

    " What a lot of trouble Pinnochio finds! Amelia and I read this book together, and now she wants to make a puppet, too :) Lots of great moral lessons in this one. I definitely recommend this version over the non-originals (Disney included). "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Adrian | 7/2/2011

    " I read it when I was like 5 or 6 year old. It was my first book and I enjoyed it. It certainly isn't marvelous but it is more than ok and worths reading (at least when you're little) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amanda | 6/26/2011

    " Disney really edited this.... a cross between the gingerbread man (pinocchio) and the giving tree (geppetto)



    as near as I can tell, this version is not a retelling. compared with Rand McNally & Company 1939. skimmed the text and it appears the same :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chris | 6/20/2011

    " Not the edition we had when I was a child(50's) but close enough. I don't know
    that I'd recognize the cover even if it was in the lookup list. Some of my first book/look/reading experience. Date read is just approximate. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Toya | 6/12/2011

    " Awwww what a classic story of a wooden boy who just wants to be accepted I love reading this story as a kid and it never gets old even now! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Heather | 5/26/2011

    " Interesting to read the original Pinnochio story but I got bored after 50 pages. Perhaps it was because I already knew what was going to happen, but I lost interest. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rachel | 5/19/2011

    " I was pleasantly surprised by this classic piece of children's literature. It opens up a lot of dialogue with children about moral issues. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amy | 5/16/2011

    " I had never read the real story and was surprised by how different it is than the Walt Disney version. In the book it takes Pinocchio much longer to become a good boy and he is also blatantly naughty in the book as opposed to being deceived into being naughty in the movie. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Frank | 5/14/2011

    " My my. Such a naughty boy.. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Matthew | 5/10/2011

    " On the whole, this has to be the least satisfying classic I've read over the past couple of months. I genuinely disliked nearly every character in the book, with special emphasis on Pinocchio. I was rooting for the fireplace rather than the real boy angle. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tanya | 5/8/2011

    " This is now one of my FAVORITE childrens books! This book teaches so much about life, has symbolism, and moves quickly. Everyone would run to hear this when it was time to read! "

About the Author
Author Carlo Collodi

Carlo Collodi (1826–1890) was the pen name of Carlo Lorenzini, an Italian journalist born in Florence. Collodi’s life and writings were dedicated to the Italian liberation movement to free the country from Austrian domination and establish a national identity. In 1875, Collodi put aside his political struggles and turned to a new interest, writing for children.
