~Retold by Roberto Piumini
~Illustrated by Lucia Salemi
One of the most well-known characters in children's literature, Pinocchio, is brought to life in this new retelling by award-winning teacher-turned-author Roberto Piumini. The story follows the adventures of the living puppet, Pinocchio, who must prove himself worthy to become a real boy. This child-friendly adaptation is part of a special classics collection that has sold over 1 million print copies worldwide, and is now brought into vivid full color on your tablet!
The story of Pinocchio is one that I cherished as a child and even shared with my own children so I was anxious to read the story as retold by Roberto Piumini. It was just as delightful as I remember with the timeless message that honesty is always the best policy. The retold story is a more condensed version making it perfect for young children who can sometimes lose interest in long stories.
The vibrant and detailed illustrations are incredible adding to the joy of reading this unforgettable classic.
I recommend picking up a copy of Pinocchio. Available at Amazon.com.
