The Adventures of Pinocchio

by Carlo Collodi. Illustrated by Robert Ingpen

The book

The tale of how the old woodcarver Geppetto made a puppet boy from an unusual piece of wood, who could talk, dance and turn somersaults, has been a much-loved story since it was first written more than 130 years ago. Pinocchio ignores the advice of his kindly father and sets off into the world for some extraordinary adventures...

In 1986 he was awarded the Hans Christian Andersen Medal for his contribution to children’s literature and he has been honoured with Membership of the Order of Australia. A world-renowned artist and author, Ingpen has designed, illustrated and written more than one hundred books, including his highly acclaimed series of illustrated Children’s Classics, which have now been published in many editions around the world.
