During the 1970s, the collaborative art of twin brothers Greg and Tim Hildebrandt captivated a generation with vivid depictions of characters from J.R.R. Tolkien's "Lord of the Rings" trilogy. Today, both are acclaimed fantasy and comic book illustrators, and Greg Hildebrandt has turned his focus to children's books. His gorgeous images bring to life the story of Pinocchio, the marionette who longs to be a real boy. This new illustrated classic edition is closely adapted from the most widely accepted translation of the enchanting folk tale by the 19th-century Italian journalist Carlo Collodi, first published in 1883.About the Author:
Carlo Collodi was born in Florence, Italy in 1826. At the age of 22, he became a journalist to work for the Italian independence struggle and also wrote comedies and edited newspapers and reviews. In 1861, when Italy became a united nation, Collodi gave up journalism and settled down as a theatrical censor and magazine editor. He then turned to children's fantasy, and in 1881 the first chapter of "Pinocchio" appeared in the "Giornale Dei Bambini," and became an immediate success. Collodi died in Florence in 1890. Greg Hildebrandt is a well-known children's book illustrator. He lives in New Jersey.
