Collodi

Collodi
  Pinocchio Park – Long before Walt Disney, Pinocchio was a popular story in Italy, written by Carlo Collodi (pseudonym for Carlo Lorenzini) in 1881, and serialized in a children's newspaper. Younger kids will love the charming, old-fashioned Pinocchio Park in the small town of Collodi, near Florence. The park has statues and fountains of all the Pinocchio characters, and a delightful puppet show with all the familiar characters. (Never mind that the puppet show is in Italian.)

Pinocchio
Carlo Collodi, Emma Rosa, Sara Fanelli

A unique translation of Pinocchio, from the Italian original, filled with unexpected adventures of the puppet who wants to be a real boy. Young readers will enjoy Pinocchio as a hero very different from the cartoon character, fabulously illustrated by a contemporary Italian artist. (Chapter book)
