Pinocchio is a punk-ass reprobate. He couldn't walk the straight and narrow if it were the only available path between a shark tank and a bramble forest.

But though he's a block-head he has goodness in him, and therefore we follow his adventures with relish, knowing he'll inevitably make the wrong choice. Until he doesn't, and is redeemed.

I have a fantastic edition of this book with these craaaazy illustrations:

I can lend it to you if you like... it is phenomenal, and I read it as a child and the illustrations STILL haunt my dreams! I picked it up on ebay one day as a treat to myself... and was surprised just how scared of it I still was... aaah, childhood trauma.
