Resumen del libro

Everyone knows Pinocchio, the walking, talking wooden puppet carved from a table leg. Pinocchio, an endearing scamp, is always getting himself into trouble. But it isn't the sort of trouble most kids get into. Skiving off school, he is kidnapped by a puppeteer, robbed by a Cat and Fox, and persuaded to visit an earthly paradise where naughty children have perpetual fun - and turn into donkeys. Sold to a circus, then to a man who tries to drown him for his donkey-skin, he miraculously turns back into a puppet and goes in search of his 'father' (whom he must rescue from the belly of a giant dogfish...). Throughout these manic adventures he is haunted by the ghost of a Talking Cricket he has crushed to death for giving good advice, and watched over by his personal guardian fairy. All the while, Pinocchio dreams of becoming a real boy. Told with wit and humour, his story is also a moral fable about making the right choices, and what it is to be a loving human being. Pinocchio is an astonishing work of fantasy which has been toned down and sentimentalized over the years, not least by the Walt Disney film. Everyman returns to a beautifully illustrated early translation of 1916 which captures the vivid inventiveness of Collodi's original.

Biografía del autor

Carlo Lorenzini (Florencia, 1826-1890) fue periodista y escritor. Desde 1856 comenzó a utilizar como pseudónimo el nombre con el que pasaría a la posteridad: Collodi, el pueblo toscano donde había nacido su madre. De su copiosa obra destacan sobre todo los libros que dedicó a la infancia (I racconti delle fate, Las aventuras del mono Pipí y otros relatos recogidos en Storie allegre, además de textos escolares como Giannettino o Minuzzolo). Pero sin duda es conocido en todo el mundo por ser autor de Pinocho, editado por entregas entre 1881 y 1883 en el Giornale per i bambini.
