Nose of Pinocchio Grew Longer
One day Pinocchio begged to his father so that he could go for school. He said, “Father, I want to go to school, like other boys.”
“Of course, my boy” said Geppetto. But he had no money to buy schoolbooks. He then went out. A couple hours, Geppetto came back home with schoolbooks. “Now you can go to school,” he said.
“But Father,” said Pinocchio, “where is your warm coat?”
With a wave of his hand Geppetto said, “No need to worry about that. What matters is that you will go to school tomorrow!” He did not want Pinocchio to know he had sold his warm coat to buy the schoolbooks. (Also read : Pinocchio a Wooden Puppet Boy)
The next morning, Pinocchio said good-bye to Geppetto. He skipped along the path to school, humming as he went. The Cricket rode on his shoulder, happy, too.
Coming up to them on the path was a Fox and a Cat.
“Where are you going on this fine day?” said the Fox.
“I am going to school!” said Pinocchio.
“On such a fine day as this?” said the Fox. “It is too nice to be stuck inside school! You should come with us, to the fair.”
“Listen to me,” said the Fox. He put his arm around Pinocchio’s shoulder. “Anything you need to know, you can learn at the fair.”
“Really?” said Pinocchio.
“Take it from me,” said the Fox.
“Pinocchio!” said the Cricket. “He does not know what he is talking about!”
The Fox covered the Cricket with his hat. No one could hear the little fellow as the Cricket tried to call out, “Pinocchio, do not listen to him!”
“Okay!” said Pinocchio. “Let’s go to the fair!” And off they went.
What a fair it was! By the gate was a man dressed in white. He called out, “Come in, come in! Right this way! Get your tickets here!”
With a sad look Pinocchio said to the Fox and Cat, “I do not have any tickets.”
A man was selling old things at a table near the gate. He called, “Hey, you! Sell me those new schoolbooks of yours! That is how you can get money for tickets.”
The fair was so bright and colorful and exciting, that the next thing Pinocchio knew he had sold his schoolbooks for tickets.
“No, Pinocchio, stop!” called the Cricket, who finally got out from under the Fox’s hat. But Pinocchio, the Fox and the Cat did not hear him. They were already inside the fair.
On stage was a puppet show! “I am a puppet, too!” said Pinocchio. “I can dance like that!” He jumped right onto the stage and started to dance with the other puppets. (Also read other article at : Masuk Toilet Bayar 2000 Rupiah)
“Look at that new puppet!” someone called. “It has no strings!”
“No strings?” said another. “Amazing!”
Everyone laughed and laughed. They threw coins on the stage.
The man who ran the fair saw coins fly onto the stage. “Well, now!” he said, rubbing his chin. “This puppet with no strings will make me rich!”
The next thing Pinocchio knew, he was picked up and thrown in a birdcage. In the next moment, the door was locked shut.
“Hey, get me out!” called Pinocchio. But the person who had thrown him in just left the room. Only the Cricket heard Pinocchio’s calls. The Cricket ran back and forth, in and out of the birdcage, trying to find a way to free the lock. But he could not unlock it.
“I am stuck!” cried Pinocchio. “How did this happen to me?”
All of a sudden, poof! There was the Blue Fairy.
“Please!” said Pinocchio. “Can you help me?”
“Tell me something first,” said the Blue Fairy. “How did you get inside that cage?”
“Tell her what happened,” said the Cricket.
“Well…” Pinocchio stopped. Could he really tell the Blue Fairy what had happened? What would she think of him?
“Um, I was robbed,” said Pinocchio.
“Is that right?” said the Blue Fairy with a frown. Pinocchio’s nose began to grow.
“Yes, robbed!” said Pinocchio. “By two mean men – no, four!” The nose grew more.
“They took my books. They made me come here. And they threw me into this cage!”
His nose grew longer and longer. Until Pinocchio could see nothing in front of his face but one big giant nose.
“Why is my nose so big?” Pinocchio cried out. (Also read other article at : Seven Days for Beloved Father)
“Pinocchio!” said the Blue Fairy in a stern voice. “You must know what the truth really is.”
“I guess so,” said Pinocchio. “I wanted to come to the fair. I came here with a Fox and the Cat.” The nose grew shorter.
“I had to sell my books to get some tickets.”
“Had to?” said the Blue Fairy.
“I mean, I decided to sell my books to get tickets,” he said. And the nose got a little shorter.
“Then someone put me in this cage,” he said.
The nose was back to normal. “Good job, Pinocchio!” said the Cricket.
“Well done,” said the Blue Fairy. “Now I will get you out of here.”
With a wave of her wand, Pinocchio was out of the cage.
“Here are your books.” And Pinocchio was holding the same new schoolbooks in his hands again.
“Know this,” said the Blue Fairy, “you are on your own from now on. Make sure you do the right thing next time.” And she was gone.
