The beloved tale of a wooden puppet who longs to become a real boy. Pinocchio (/pɪˈnoʊkioʊ/) is a fictional character and the protagonist of the original children's novel The Adventures of Pinocchio (1883) by Italian writer Carlo Collodi. Carved by a woodcarver named Geppetto in a village near Lucca, he was created as a wooden puppet but dreamed of becoming a real boy. He lies often.
Pinocchio is a cultural icon. As one of the most reimagined characters in children's literature, his story has been adapted into other media, notably the 1940 Disney film Pinocchio.
