The Adventures of Pinocchio
Written by Carlo Collodi, illustrated by Regina Carbonara
Available formats: ePub and Kindle
The Adventures of Pinocchio is a novel for children by Italian author Carlo Collodi, written in Florence. The first half was originally a serial in 1881 and 1882, and then later completed as a book for children in February 1883. It is about the mischievous adventures of an animated marionette named Pinocchio and his father, a poor woodcarver named Geppetto. It is considered a canonical piece of children’s literature and has inspired hundreds of new editions, stage plays, merchandising and movies, such as Walt Disney’s iconic animated version and commonplace ideas such as a liar’s long nose. According to an extensive research done by the Fondazione Nazionale Carlo Collodi in late 1990’s and based on UNESCO sources it has been adapted in more than 240 languages worldwide. That makes it among the most translated and widely read books ever written.
