Description: Josephine Poole recreates the adventures of the mischievous wooden puppet for today's younger readers, retaining all the excitement, humour, beauty and sheer joy of the original story.
James Mayhew's vivid illustrations have been specially commissioned for this book, and take their inspiration from the colours and images of the Italian landscape in which Collodi wrote his children's masterpiece.
The jacket has some very light scuffing along the top, and there are the remains of the price sticker on the rear. Otherwise, it is in excellent condition. Apart from a bumped spine at the tail, the book is in excellent condition throughout. Laminated pictorial boards repeat the jacket design.
