The perfect gift for all ages, Pinocchio as you ve never seen him before: telling his own story through the master storyteller and award-winning author of WAR HORSE.

Now there s 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 I m not just a puppet, I m more than just bits of wood and string. I m 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 Pinocchio s words to tell the famous puppet s 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."
