Working from the original Italian, Marianna Mayer has translated the story of Pinocchio with all of its original vitality, and adapted it so that it brings alive the story for the present-day reader. The flavor of Italian life in town and countryside has been brilliantly portrayed by Gerald McDermott. His vivid colors and playful interpretation distinguish this handsome edition of a classic favorite. Together they have produced a volume which is truly universal in its appeal.
