The perfect gift for younger children, Pinocchio as you’ve never seen him before: telling his own story through Michael Morpurgo, master storyteller and award-winning author of WAR HORSE.
“Everyone knows Pinocchio is a puppet. I reckon I must be just about the most famous puppet the world has ever known. But the truth is that I’m more than just bits of wood and string. I’m me. So I thought it was about time that I, Pinocchio, told you my story…”
So begins this stunningly beautiful interpretation of the classic story, now abridged for reading together with younger children. Michael Morpurgo channels Pinocchio’s words to tell the famous puppet’s story in his own inimitable, cheeky and always funny way.
Lavishly illustrated throughout in full colour by the acclaimed Emma Chichester Clark, this is a must-have gift for all book lovers, and an utterly charming and surprising picture-book adaptation of a much-loved tale.
