Summary: The story of the wooden puppet who learns goodness and becomes a real boy is famous the world over, and has been familiar in English for over a century.

An adult reader will recognize the social and political satire, and the invaluable introduction and notes ill
uminate the cultural traditions on which Collodi drew.
