    Pinocchio (Illustrated)

    This edition of Carlo Collodi’s original, madcap tale is accompanied by more than 50 full-page watercolors by acclaimed painter Fulvio Testa. “This translation revives the sardonic wit and black humour of the original.”

    Pinocchio

    This new translation of Pinocchio will forever banish the saucer-eyed Disney character from your mind (not to mention the advice-spouting Talking Cricket, whom Pinocchio squashes with a mallet in chapter 4). In his place is Collodi’s greedy, charming, subversive boy-puppet and a dreamlike story that flaunts its commedia dell’arte roots.
