For this unprecedented illustrated edition of PINOCCHIO, Beehive Books has teamed up with two of their favorite authors, Mike Mignola (creator of Hellboy) and Lemony Snicket (A Series of Unfortunate Events). Together, they've devised a completely new way to read Carlo Collodi's novel.

This edition includes not only a suite of over fifty exquisite original illustrations from Mike Mignola, breathing a gorgeous new life to the charm, gloom, and chaos of this classic…it also includes a full text annotation by Lemony Snicket, who takes the reader along with him for his own first experience of the text. The annotations are presented on typewritten sheets, inserted by Snicket as his confrontation with Carlo Collodi's text drives him slowly mad.

Across over one hundred annotations, a parallel story of a writer’s journey through this great Italian fable unfolds. Snicket isn’t here to explain PINOCCHIO, or to give you historical context – he is encountering the text alongside you, speaking with it in the lyrical, hilarious, and poignantly insightful voice that makes him one of one of the great storytellers of our age.
