Rod puppets tell Carlo Collodis story of what it means to be real in the Puppet Co.s Pinocchio. Share the trials and tribulations of the little live puppet as he finds, in one adventure after another, that the easy way isnt always the right way. Pinocchio sets out for school with the best of intentions, but something more interesting leads him off the straight and narrow path. Fox and Cat, a puppet show, and a coach ride to a land too good to be true distract Pinocchio in his quest to become a real boy.
