Reader's note

This lovely blue edition of Pinocchio The Tale of a Puppet by C. Collodi is a fairytale in effect and yet the hero of it is a boy made of wood who does nothing, speaks and thinks nothing but that which an average likely and good hearted boy would do. The character of Pinocchio is, in fact, testimony to the author's admirable study of child-nature. Pinocchi is a mass of creditable intentions. He has a high sense of duty and a kindly disposition. At the same time his love of sight-seeing, his dislike of toil, and his ingeniousness and credulity, work against his finer traits to such an extent that the result is weakness of character. Happily the experience of evils that come to self-indulgence teach Pinocchio that it pays to be good. These sound moral lessons are pills which can be swallowed by the younger reader with as much real enjoyment and appreciation as the sugar which coats them, for they are all part of the fun.
