Summary

Once upon a time, there was a talking, walking, dancing piece of wood. His name was Pinocchio, the marionette created from an enchanted log by Tuscan woodcarver Geppetto.

The miraculous puppet dreams of being a real boy, but he has a mischievous streak. Pinocchio fights, kicks, lies, and runs away before Geppetto can teach him the lessons of life.

Challenged by an escalating series of misadventures, Pinocchio must learn to be selfless, respectful, and honest in order to fulfill his wishes and lose his strings. A childhood favorite, Pinocchio endures as a rite of passage and illustrates the difficulties of growing up, staying true to oneself, and being kind to others.

Revised edition: Previously published as The Adventures of Pinocchio, this edition of The Adventures of Pinocchio (AmazonClassics Edition) includes editorial revisions.

Oh Pinocchio!

The Adventures of Pinocchio is a timeless classic. I've seen the various movies over the years and enjoyed them. Nothing compares to the book though!
Pinocchio was relatable to the insights of small children who seem to repeatedly run headlong into trouble. My 10-year-old son and 7-year-old daughter enjoyed listening to Pinocchio's mishaps and regrets with me. We frequently chatted about his mistakes and what he should have done instead.
This audiobook made a great bedtime story for us all. It took us only a week to get through because we didn't want to stop listening! I have no doubt we will enjoy it again in the future.
