The Adventures of Pinocchio by Carlo CollodiDownload The Adventures of Pinocchio ebook. The Adventures of Pinocchio (/pɪˈnoʊki.oʊ/ pi-NOH-kee-oh; Italian: Le avventure di Pinocchio [le avvenˈtuːre di piˈnɔkkjo]) is a novel for children by Italian author Carlo Collodi, written in Pescia. The first half was originally a serial in 1881 and 1882, published as La storia di un burattino (literally “The tale of a puppet”), and then later completed as a book for children in February 1883. It is about the mischievous adventures of an animated marionette named Pinocchio and his father, a poor woodcarver named Geppetto.
It is considered a canonical piece of children’s literature and has inspired hundreds of new editions, stage plays, merchandising and movies, such as Walt Disney’s iconic animated version and commonplace ideas such as a liar’s long nose. According to extensive research done by the Fondazione Nazionale Carlo Collodi in late 1990s and based on UNESCO sources, it has been adapted in over 260 languages worldwide. That makes it the most translated non-religious book in the world, and one of the best-selling books ever published. According to Francelia Butler, it remains “the most widely read book in the world after the Bible”
This is a review for the free Kindle edition. The e-book version is well-formatted without any noticeable mistakes. It doesn’t have any front matter (no preface or introduction) nor a table of contents, but the work is divided into chapters and as a whole is fairly short (novella-length, “1441” locations). The only annoying part is the old-fashioned one-sentence summary of each chapter that you have to learn to skip over (lest you find out what’s about to happen).
The story itself is wilder and weirder than the Disney movie. It’s a little more violent, a little more moralistic, but still an entertaining read. The classic components of the story that most people know are here (Geppetto, the extending nose, and even an unnamed talking cricket, who is not treated quite as gently here), but there are other characters and events that are classic in their own right (the fox and the cat, the girl with azure hair). Though the story can have a grab-bag, incohesive feel at times, the last sequence of events (beginning with the trip to the “Land of Toys”) is compelling. A fun read!
