A newly illustrated edition of this classic tale by one of Australia s greatest children s book illustrators. Unabridged edition.
The astonishing tale of how the old woodcarver Geppetto made a disobedient puppet boy from an unusual piece of wood, who could talk, dance and turn somersaults, has been a much-loved story since it was first written more than 130 years ago. In this handsome new edition, award-winning illustrator Robert Ingpen has captured the rascally Pinocchio and his extraordinary escapades as never before, breathing new excitement into this enchanting classic.
Robert Ingpen was born in Geelong, Australia. He began studying illustration art and book design over fifty years ago at The Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology and has designed, written and illustrated more than one hundred works of fiction and non-fiction. In 1986, Ingpen received the highest honour in the children s book world, the Hans Christian Andersen Medal, for his contribution to international children s literature. In recent times, he has illustrated editions of classic works such as The Jungle Book, Treasure Island, A Christmas Carol, Alice s Adventures in Wonderland, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, Around the World in Eighty Days, Just So Stories and the centenary editions of Peter Pan and Wendy, The Wind in the Willows and The Owl and the Pussycat and Other Nonsense Rhymes.
