Short stories

Now-theres no point in pretending here - I was and still am deep down, a puppet. Everyone knows Pinocchio is a puppet. I reckon I must be just about the most famous puppet the world has ever known. But the truth is Im not just a puppet, Im more than just bits of wood and string. Im me. So I thought it was about time that I, Pinocchio, told you my story.

So begins this stunningly beautiful interpretation of the classic story. Michael Morpurgo channels Pinocchios words to tell the famous puppets story in his own inimitable, cheeky and always funny way.

Lavishly illustrated throughout in full colour by the acclaimed Emma Chichester Clark, this is a must-have gift for all book lovers and an utterly charming and surprising adaptation of a much-loved tale.
