Pinocchio

The original 1883, Italian version of Pinocchio is far darker than the version modern audiences are acquainted with. Pinnochio is pathologically selfish, and the world he inhabits is full of villains. Murderous circus owners, thieving woodland creatures, and a guilt-trip inducing Blue Fairy all cross his path.Sponsors!ModCloth - To get 15% off your purchase of $100 or more, including all sale items, go to modcloth.com and enter code TALES at checkout.
