The adventures of life teach a puppet about honesty and humanity. A little wooden marionette is lovingly created by a master craftsmen... but what a bad little puppet he turns out to be! He's selfish and greedy, and he lies. He doesn't listen to the good counsel of anyone: his father Gepetto, a philosophe Cricket, or a Blue Fairy. After many hair raising adventures, Pinocchio finally learns what it takes to become human... kindness, compassion, loyalty, hard work and selflessness. His one and only friend visits him as a ghost, and starts him on a journey that melts his icy heart and teaches him the joys of caring for, and giving to others. Best for ages 3 and older.
