Pinocchio, Carlo Collodi's peppy impish wooden puppet, must encounter many adventures before finally coming to his senses... But what must a plum pit endure before it can become a puppet?


This adventurous and comic tale told by a talking plank recounts the winding and capricious life story of a plum pit given to escapades. Screenwriter, comic book creator and author, Vojt ch Ma ek, exhibits a sense for lively, nearly theatrical, storytelling and returns absurdist humour and biting levity to the children's literary scene. Abundant linocut illustrations and graphics by artist Chrudo Valou ek are, as always, stunning.


Winner of the 2019 Bologna Ragazzi Award, the 2018 Golden Ribbon Award, and the 2017 Most Beautiful Czech Book award.
