Pinocchio (UK /pɪˈnoʊkioʊ/ or US /pɪˈnoʊkioʊ/; [piˈnɔkkjo]) is a fictional character and the main protagonist of the children’s novel The Adventures of Pinocchio (1883), by the Italian writer Carlo Collodi. Carved by a woodcarver named Geppetto in a small Italian village, he was created as a wooden puppet, but dreamed of becoming a real boy. He has also been used as a character who is prone to telling lies and fabricating stories for various reasons. The story has appeared in many adaptations in other mediums. Pinocchio has been called an icon of modern culture, and one of the most reimagined characters in the pantheon of children’s literature.
