THE PATUA PINOCCHIO

Carlo Collodi, Swarna Chitrakar

This quintessentially Indian version of a much-loved children’s classic features art from the Patua scroll tradition of West Bengal, India. Carlo Collodi’s original Italian text centres on a marionette who escapes his wooden fate and has many adventures, including a stint at sea in the stomach of a shark. This Indian version is abridged from Carol Della Chiesa’s well-known English translation, and illustrated by award-winning scroll painting artist Swarna Chitrakar.

Description

Tara Books is an independent publishing house started in 1994 by Gita Wolf. Over the years, she was joined by other creative friends who have helped Tara grow organically and in many directions.
