"Walker Illustrated Classics" is a new series which brings together some of the best-loved stories ever told, illustrated by some of today's finest artists. These exquisitely designed books, with their magnificent words and glorious pictures, are a pleasure to read - and reread. The classics have never looked so good! To be a real boy - that is the heart's desire of Pinocchio, a little wooden puppet carved by the old carpenter Geppetto out of a special piece of wood. But the wooden puppet is naughty, mischievous and bold, and has many adventures and faces many challenges before he can become a good little boy at last. This superb new translation by award-winning translator Emma Rose is matched by Sara Fanelli's playful illustrations in this witty version of Carlo Collodi's classic story.
