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. This new translation does full justice to the vibrancy and wit of Collodi's original. Ann Lawson Lucas's translation captures the complexity of Collodi's word-play, slapstick humor, and immediacy of dialogue. An adult reader will recognize the social and political satire, and the invaluable introduction and notes illuminate the cultural traditions on which Collodi drew.
