The story of the wooden puppet who learns goodness and becomes a real boy is famous the world over, and has been familiar in English for over a century. This new translation does full justice to the vibrancy and wit of Collodi's original. Far more sophisticated, funny, and hard-hitting than the many abridged versions (and the sentimentalized film) of the story would suggest, Ann Lawson Lucas's translation captures the complexity of Collodi's word-play, slapstickhumour, and immediacy of dialogue.
