Pinocchio is the riotous, tragicomic tale of the most well-known puppet in fiction. Both mischievous and loving, Pinocchio encounters all manner of unusual and dangerous characters on his adventures and must undergo a series of fiendishly imaginative trials - among them being swallowed by a giant dogfish and turned into a braying donkey - that will lead him to self-knowledge. Along the way he will be helped by a beautiful fairy and his adoring father Gepetto, as he learns how to become what he most longs to be; a real boy.

Illustrated by Charles Folkard, with an Afterword by Anna South.
