|Pinocchio First Printed (1883) ~ The Adventures of Pinocchio (Italian: Le
avventure di Pinocchio) is a novel for children by Italian author Carlo
Collodi. The first half was originally a serial between 1881 and 1883, and
then later completed as a book for children in February 1883. It is about
the mischievous adventures of Pinocchio (IPA: [pi'nok:jo]), an animated
marionette, and his poor father, a woodcarver named Geppetto. It is
considered a classic of children's literature and has spawned many
derivative works of art, such as Disney's classic 1940 animated movie of the
same name, and commonplace ideas, such as a liar's long nose.
