In this children's favorite, Geppetto, a modest woodcarver, carves a puppet out of a magical piece of wood. The man is surprised to find that his wooden puppet, Pinocchio, can speak, dance, and get himself in trouble. Pinocchio is the story of a puppet and his misadventures as he learns to become a good human boy.
Donal Donnelly's performance enhances the charming quality of this story, bringing to life the many voices and characters. Donnelly's voice ranges in emotion and pitch, giving this enduring classic a fresh sound.

Not Disney!

Think you know the story? You're probably wrong. What a fantastic tale! Disney should be flogged for dumbing down this wonderful and educational warning tale.
