About the Book

Italian novelist Carlo Collodi created The Adventures of Pinocchio, often known as Pinocchio, while living in Pescia. It tells the story of the mischievous exploits of Geppetto, a destitute woodcarver, and his son Pinocchio, an animated puppet. A carpenter in Tuscany, Italy, discovers a slab of wood that he intends to turn into a table leg. He offers it to Geppetto, a poor neighbor who wants to become a puppeteer in order to support himself. When Pinocchio tries to cook an egg because he is hungry, a bird hatches out of it, leaving him without food. The Fox and Cat, who are robbing Pinocchio while masquerading as robbers, catch him. When the Cat's paw gets bit off, the puppet hides the money in his mouth and flees. One doctor claims Pinocchio is alive, the other believes he is dead, after the Fairy has saved him. When the Cat and the Fox first see Pinocchio, they inform him of the Cat's missing paw. In order to place his wealth in the Field of Miracles, the puppet consents to accompany them. A gorilla court sentences Pinocchio to four months in jail for stupidity. When Pinocchio tries to swim to his father, he washes up on the shore. In order to go to the closest island, known as the Island of Busy Bees, Pinocchio accepts a ride from a dolphin. In gratitude for saving him from The Green Fisherman, the puppet escapes from a drowning Mastiff by the name of Alidoro.

About Author

Carlo Collodi

Italian author, humorist, and writer Carlo Lorenzini (24 November 1826 – 26 October 1890), better known by his pen name Carlo Collodi, is well known for his children's book The Adventures of Pinocchio. His father, Domenico Lorenzini, was a cook, and his mother, Angiolina Orzali Lorenzini, was a seamstress from Collodi, the town from which he eventually adopted the pen name. For the marchese Ginori Lisci, both parents were employed. Carlo was the family's eldest child; he had 10 siblings, but seven of them passed away when they were very young. The majority of his formative years were spent in Collodi, the town where his mother was born. Along with his maternal grandma, he resided there. Collodi enlisted as a volunteer in the Tuscan army in 1848 and 1860 to fight in the Italian Wars of Independence. His early literary works and the establishment of the satirical weekly Il Lampione in 1853 both reflect his keen interest in politics. The grand duke of Tuscany issued an order to censor this journal. On October 26, 1890, Collodi, who was 63 years old, passed away unexpectedly in Florence. He was buried there in the Cimitero Monumentale Delle Porte Sante.
