Written by Carlo Collodi in 1883, Pinocchio is an adventure-filled fairy tale with an important moral. Created by the kindly Geppetto, the mischievous marionette Pinocchio dreams of becoming a real boy. However, his dishonesty, selfishness, and unrestrained curiosity constantly put him in harm’s way. Travelling from the misleading “Field of Miracles,” where gold coins are said to grow, to the land where lazy boys transform into donkeys, Pinocchio’s path is paved with mistakes, willfulness, and danger. All the while Pinocchio’s nose keeps growing longer and longer every time he tells a lie, so all the world can see his deception. Will Pinocchio ever learn to be good and become a real boy? Collodi’s timeless story teaches important lessons of goodness, hard work, and diligence.
