The Adventures of Pinocchio


    Geppetto, the brilliant Italian carpenter, carves a block of wood into a puppet who will be the son he has always wanted and a loving companion in his old age. But times prove tough for Pinocchio, the wooden boy, who finds himself an oddity in the village and always in trouble. Then one night a little grasshopper tells him about a blue fairy who has the magic to turn him into a real boy…

    And so begins an epic voyage of discovery as Pinocchio, hotly pursued by his broken hearted father, tackles a fearsome fire-eater, conniving highwaymen, a town filled with nonsense, a killer shark and a really really big nose.
