The old wood-carver Geppetto decides to make a wonderful puppet which can dance and turn somersaults, but by chance he chooses an unusual piece of wood - and the finished puppet can talk and misbehave like the liveliest child. But Pinocchio is brave and inquisitive as well as naughty, and after some hair-raising adventures, he earns his heart's desire.

Heart-warming introduction by John Boyne, author of Boy in the Striped Pyjamas.

Unusually brisk special effects animate this relatively less satiric but equally amusing adaptation of the classic tale.
