The finest puppet story ever written is beautifully read by the king of spoken word, Martin Jarvis. Sure to be a listening hit with adults and children alike, 'Pinocchio' is a timeless classic with a moralistic core. A listener will be swept along at a fast pace from the first day that Gepetto carves his puppet from a piece of wood. With many adventures along the way which prove to be dangerous as well as important lessons, this story has a strong moral fibre which encourages people not to tell lies or risk humiliating consequences! Also a touching tale of a creation who is deserate to be deemed human – 'a real boy', this story can also be interpreted as having racial and social aspects which are incredibly appropriate in modern times, too. A classic story, expertly told.
