Pinocchio tells the tale of Gepetto who creates a puppet, which then magically comes to life. Gepetto names him Pinocchio & brings him up as his son. Pinocchio, however, finds it hard to be good & is easily led astray. He ends up stumbling from one misadventure to another—whether in the belly of a giant fish, in the Land of Toys or in the Field of Miracles. It is up to his loyal friend in the Fairy to help him see that his dream of becoming a real boy is only possible if he changes his ways.
