Designed to appeal to the book lover, the Macmillan Collector’s Library is a series of beautifully bound pocket-sized gift editions of much loved classic titles. Bound in real cloth, printed on high quality paper, and featuring ribbon markers and gilt edges, Macmillan Collector’s Library are books to love and treasure.

Geppetto, a poor woodcarver, crafts a marionette from a strange piece of talking wood and inadvertently brings the mischievous Pinocchio – a walking, talking, wooden boy – into the world. The naughty, selfish puppet heads off into the world and encounters all manner of unusual and dangerous characters on his adventures, undergoing a series of fiendishly imaginative trials – among them being swallowed by a giant dogfish and turned into a donkey – that will lead him to self-knowledge. Along the way he will be helped by a beautiful fairy, a talking cricket and his loving father as he learns how to become what he most longs to be – a real boy.

One of the most widely read books of all time, Pinocchio is a riotous, tragicomic tale that will charm young and old with its endearing blend of mischief and magic.

This beautiful Macmillan Collector’s Library edition of Pinocchio features the charming illustrations of the classic British illustrator Charles Folkard and an afterword by Anna South.
