When Carlo Colldi (the pen name of Carlo Lorenzini) wrote this little did he know that his fairy tale would be still read all over the world and enjoyed by millions, appearing in cartoons and films as well as the original story for all this length of time. I must admit that I have never seen Pinocchio (2 Disc Platinum Edition) [DVD] [1940
], I have only ever read the book. So seeing this title was available for the kindle, and not have reading it in I don't know how many years, I decided it was high time I read it again.
Who doesn't know the basic story of Pinocchio? But - have you ever read the original either to yourself, or to your children? Pinocchio gets into lots of high jinks after he is first made, but ultimately his heart is in the right place. But only with putting childish things behind him, accpeting duty and getting on in life can he progress. This is a great tale for children, but it is also still as great to read as an adult. Filled with animals that can talk, other puppets like Pinocchio, and a fairy, there is just so much to take in. So why not treat yourself and read a nice little magical fantasy filled with humour and adventure.
