Summary

A modern retelling of the story about a wooden puppet who wanted to become a boy, as told by the puppet himself


"Now - there's no point in pretending here - I was, and still am deep down, a puppet. 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 I'm not just a puppet, 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.

NOTE : First published as a novel with colour illustrations in 2013, and issued in Picture book format in 2014.
