A newly illustrated edition of this classic tale by one of Australia s greatest children s book illustrators. Unabridged edition.
The astonishing tale of how the old woodcarver Geppetto made a disobedient puppet boy from an unusual piece of wood, who could talk, dance and turn somersaults, has been a much-loved story since it was first written more than 130 years ago. In this handsome new edition, award-winning illustrator Robert Ingpen has captured the rascally Pinocchio and his extraordinary escapades as never before, breathing new excitement into this enchanting classic.
