The Adventures of Pinocchio by Carlo Collodi explores the theme about that people will be rewarded for being brave, loyal, and honest.


A poor man named Geppetto wants to carve himself a marionette in order to make a living as a puppeteer. He is given a piece of enchanted wood, and as soon as Geppetto carves the puppet, which he names Pinocchio, it begins abusing the old man.

Famous Quotes:

“To-morrow I cease to be a puppet, and I become a boy like you and all the other boys.”

“Don’t trust to those who promise to make you rich in a day. Usually they are either mad or rogues.”

“Would it be possible to find a more ungrateful boy, or one with less heart than I have!”

″‘I look quite like a gentleman!’ ‘Yes, indeed,’ answered Geppetto, ‘for bear in mind that it is not fine clothes that make the gentleman, but rather clean clothes.‘”

“For at last I have seen that disobedient boys come to no good and gain nothing.”

“Well done, Pinocchio! To reward you for your good heart I will forgive you for all that is past. Boys who minister tenderly to their parents and assist them in their misery and infirmities, are deserving of great praise and affection…”
