Once upon a time there was a poor and lonely carpenter. His name was Gepetto. He lived all by himself in a small room with one tiny window to let in the light. The carpenter decided to make a puppet to keep him company. He named the puppet Pinocchio, and put so much love into making him, that he became more than just a regular wooden puppet. Pinocchio looked just like a real boy and could dance and jump without anyone pulling any strings. And that’s just what he wanted to be. But before he could become a real boy, Pinocchio had to learn many lessons.
The wonderful story about Gepetto and Pinocchio is brought to life by An Leysen’s beautiful images. She tells this classic in her own way, with fun detailts and a surprising end. This is a beautiful book for children ages 5 and up, and for everyone who loves classic magical stories.
