Children of all ages across the world know and love the story of Pinocchio, the wooden boy with the nose that grows and grows. It has been retold here with a distinctly South African flavour.
Pinocchio’s adventures will be familiar to Readers who have come across the story before, but they might be surprised to find his travelling companion is Locust or to read about the roguish Fox and Hare who are determined to lead him astray. South African Readers will feel at home as they journey with Pinocchio through an African landscape, brought to life by Alzette Prin’s evocative and humorous illustrations.
The Adventures of Pinocchio is also available in Afrikaans as Die Avonture van Pinocchio and in Xhosa as Amahlandinyuka ka Pinokiyo
