The Adventures of Pinocchio by Carlo Collodi; Translated from the Italian by Carol Della Chiesa. The first half was originally a serial between 1881 and 1883, and then later completed as a book for children in February 1883. It is about the mischievous adventures of Pinocchio, an animated marionette, and his poor father, a woodcarver named Geppetto. It is considered a classic of childrens literature and has spawned many derivative works of art, such as Disneys 1940 animated movie of the same name, and commonplace ideas such as a liars long nose. Pinocchio is a story about an animated puppet, a talking cricket, and boys who turn into donkeys and other fairy tale devices that would be familiar to a reader of Alice in Wonderland or the Brothers Grimm. However, Pinocchios world is not in a traditional fairy-tale world, instead containing the hard realities of the need for food, shelter, and the basic measures of daily life.
