Pinocchio is a made up story person that first was told and printed in 1883, in the book The Adventures of Pinocchio by Carlo Collodi.

It is the story of a puppet who was made by wood carver, Gepetto. The puppet, Pinocchio, learns about being a real life boy. He wants to be a real human being instead of being a puppet made of wood with strings. He is famous because when he tells lies, his nose grows much longer.

The most well-known version of the tale is the Disney animated movie from 1940.
