Description

Now in paperback — Idiosyncratic collages by the acclaimed Sara Fanelli and a clever, authentic translation make this slipcased PINOCCHIO a must-have for collectors of all ages.

To be a real boy — that is the heart's desire of the little wooden puppet carved by the old and sprightly Geppeto. Naughty, mischevious, and bold, Pinocchio sets off on adventures and gets into trouble — but to achieve his desire, he will have to face many challenges and learn some very important lessons. Emma Rose's superb new translation is matched by Fanelli's playful illustrations in this unique edition of Carlo Collodi's 1883 classic.



About the Author
Carlo Collodi is the pen name of Italian author Carlo Lorenzini, creator of the beloved children s character, Pinocchio. A Tuscan who fought in Italy s wars of unification, Collodi was already a famous novelist and popular translator of French fairy tales when he began to contribute chapters in the life of a marionette to Italy s first newspaper for children, Il Giornale per i Bambini. The adventures of the disobedient puppet were an immediate success and Pinocchio s story has been translated and adapted numerous times, including the classic 1940 animated production from Walt Disney. Collodi died in 1890.

Sara Fanelli was born in Italy. She now lives in London.

Emma Rose is quickly rising as a new author with a lot to offer. She specializes in the steamy romance genre with popular series THE BILLIONAIRE'S PROPOSAL, TAKING STAGE, THREE, and STRIPPED. She self-published her first book in 2011 and has since risen to a Top 100 author in Amazon's Erotica category, among others.
