by Carlo Collodi, M. A. Murray,

The classic tale of literature's most beloved puppet is retold in this lively, easy-to-read adaptation ideal for young and reluctant readers. Pinocchio, a lonely woodcarver's puppet, magically comes to life, runs away, and gets into a lot of trouble. The wooden hero tells lies, gets robbed by a sly cat and fox, and is swallowed by a hungry shark before he learns that good deeds, not bad, will help him to fulfill his dream of becoming a real boy.
