Carlo Collodi, eigentlich Carlo Lorenzini (1826-1890) war ein italienischer Schriftsteller und Journalist. Meister Seppel, der Marionettenschnitzer, kommt aus dem Staunen nicht mehr heraus: die Puppe, die er gerade geschnitzt hat, ist lebendig! Er tauft sie Pinocchio und schnell zeigt sich: Pinocchio ist eigensinnig und rücksichtslos. Um ihm ein Schulbuch besorgen zu können, verkauft Meister Seppel seine einzige Jacke. Auf dem Weg zur Schule fühlt sich Pinocchio aber magisch von einem Puppentheater angezogen. Das ist der Anfang eines bewegten Abenteuers, in dem sich Pinocchio durch seinen Eigensinn immer wieder in große Probleme bringt. Trotzdem erfüllt sich am Ende Pinocchios großer Wunsch - ein richtiger Junge aus Fleisch und Blut zu werden.
