"I am sick of being a puppet . . . it is time I became a boy." These are the thoughts of Pinocchio, a puppet who comes magically to life when his "father," Geppetto, carves him from a piece of enchanted wood. Although Pinocchio desperately longs to become a real boy, he is prone to misbehaving and lying, which plunge him into misadventures that are both comic and dramatic. Only when he learns to behave responsibly and listen to the advice of those who truly care for him does he come to realize his dream.
