Las aventuras de Pinocho (Hardcover) (Carlo Collodi)
about this item
The astonishing tale of how an old woodcarver made a puppet boy from an unusual piece of wood who could talk, dance and do somersaults, has been a much-loved story since it was first written more than 130 years ago. The irrepressible Pinocchio ignores the advice of his kindly father and sets off into the world for some extraordinary adventures. He is a tragicomic figure — a disobedient and exuberant boy who is easily led astray. He encounters many remarkable characters including the nefarious Fox and Cat, a wise- talking cricket and a beautiful blue-haired fairy and lurches from one predicament to another. In this handsome new edition, award-winning illustrator Robert Ingpen has captured the rascally Pinocchio and his extraordinary adventures as never before, breathing new life to this entertaining classic.
