Pinocchio a Wooden Puppet Boy

       Long time ago in Italy, there lived on old clock-maker named Geppetto. Tick-tock-TICK-TOCK! Tick-tock, TICK-TOCK! There went all the clocks in his shop, when he worked, Geppetto felt happy. But when he rested, a sad feeling came over him. “Ah!” he would think. “I have worked all my life but there is no child to call my own!” (Also read : Legend of Ciung Wanara)
