Publisher's Summary

Once upon a time, there was a talking, walking, dancing piece of wood. His name was Pinocchio, the marionette created from an enchanted log by Tuscan woodcarver Geppetto.

The miraculous puppet dreams of being a real boy, but he has a mischievous streak. Pinocchio fights, kicks, lies, and runs away before Geppetto can teach him the lessons of life.

Challenged by an escalating series of misadventures, Pinocchio must learn to be selfless, respectful, and honest in order to fulfill his wishes and lose his strings. A childhood favorite, Pinocchio endures as a rite of passage and illustrates the difficulties of growing up, staying true to oneself, and being kind to others.

Revised edition: Previously published as The Adventures of Pinocchio, this edition of The Adventures of Pinocchio (AmazonClassics Edition) includes editorial revisions.

Wonderful, Wonderful

this is a wonderful story about Pinocchio much better than the Disney movie and more detailed and enjoyable. It'll make you laugh at the many mistakes Pinocchio marionette makes. and how hard he works at the end of the book to become a real boy. this book is a treasure and should be enjoyed by Young and all the life. The narration by Simon Vance one of the best narrators in the industry is top rate and not to be missed the voice inflections are wonderful and worth every moment.

So much fun!

This selection came up in my suggested reads and I laughed. Pinocchio? Really? I’m not that far from 50... but then I remembered that original classic stories can be very different than the Disney versions. This did NOT disappoint!! This original version is delightfully trippy and a tad sinister. What made it was the narrator. He’s fantastic!!! Several times my kids and husband have come running to see what I’m laughing about and shake their heads... Pinocchio.

I wish the story could go on forever, it’s such a great escape from the real world in its current condition. If you need a break, I highly recommend this.

Oh Pinocchio!

The Adventures of Pinocchio is a timeless classic. I've seen the various movies over the years and enjoyed them. Nothing compares to the book though!
Pinocchio was relatable to the insights of small children who seem to repeatedly run headlong into trouble. My 10-year-old son and 7-year-old daughter enjoyed listening to Pinocchio's mishaps and regrets with me. We frequently chatted about his mistakes and what he should have done instead.
This audiobook made a great bedtime story for us all. It took us only a week to get through because we didn't want to stop listening! I have no doubt we will enjoy it again in the future.
