We all know the story of the wooden puppet whose nose would grow when he told a lie … or do we? Unlike the Disney adaptation, the original Pinocchio story is, in fact, loaded with epic drama, action and mortal danger. Just like a puppet is controlled by its strings, Pinocchio is led by his desires. But although he tells lies, makes up stories and disobeys his father, Pinocchio is not really bad, only weak. As a result, Pinocchio is catapulted into a nightmarish adventure before he is transformed and reborn as a real boy.
