PINOCCHIO. THE ADVENTURES OF A MARIONETTE(2013 : 220 PAGES. LARGE PRINT FOR EASY READING - Original edition)

Anyone interested in the role of education and a childs place in society will be well-served to read or reread this timeless classic. As Umberto Eco has argued, although it is written in simple language, Pinocchio is not a simple book. It doesnt limit itself to one simple, basic moral, but rather deals with many meanings and it is, thus, not only moving and beautiful, but profoundly educational.

WHO IS PINOCCHIO?

Pinocchio is a fictional character and the main protagonist of the childrens novel The Adventures of Pinocchio (1883), by the Italian writer Carlo Collodi. Carved by a woodcarver named Geppetto in a small Italian village, he was created as a wooden puppet, but dreamed of becoming a real boy. Pinocchio refers to a character who is prone to telling lies and fabricating stories for various reasons.

Pinocchio learns to control his impulsive personality and shows moral and intellectual growth.

Collodis Pinocchio, as a fable, doesnt impose answers on the readers, but rather poses stimulating questions. Non simply a childrens book, Pinocchio helps readers to reflect on issues of freedom vs. authoritarianism, what system of education is most effective, how young people can be helped to develop their vocations, and how should we approach adolescent development.

Pinocchio has become an icon of modern culture, and one of the most re-imagined characters in the pantheon of childrens literature.

Pinocchio is known for having a nose that becomes longer when he tells lies (chapter 3). His clothes are made of flowered paper, his shoes are made of wood and his hat is made of bread. Aspects of Pinocchios character vary, depending on the interpretation, although basic aspects such as his creation as a puppet by Geppetto and the size of his nose changing due to his lies or stress remain present across the various formats.

In Collodis original tale, Le Avventure di Pinocchio (1883), Pinocchio, as a child, exhibits obnoxious, bratty, and selfish traits, which will eventually change after being exposed to his father Geppettos love, the Blue Fairys benevolent guidance, public education and, most of all, to his direct experience of good and evil.

It must be said that, though written in the nineteenth century, the original childrens novel, Pinocchio, remains as readable as if it had been written in our century, so limpid and simple in its prose, and so musical in its simplicity. (Umberto Eco)
