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.
