The Adventures of Pinocchio is a story of a puppet written for children by an Italian author Carlo Collodi and translated into English by M.A. Murray. It was first published in 1880. The book has been greeted with so much enthusiasm that it is translated into more than 200 languages!
The whole story of this fascinating book is built on a pivotal sentence – the last sentence of the book–which underlines the moral of the story: “How ridiculous I was when I was a puppet! and how glad I am that I have become a well- behaved little boy!” The language of the book is simple and beautiful. With every chapter the curiosity of the reader is whetted to read the book right to the end.
