Pinocchio has moved. He doesn’t live in that little town in Tuscany anymore. Like millions of other children, he lives in the suburbs. Houses all the same. Neighbours all alike. Routine, day in day out. He ain’t the puppet here! The others are. Following “In the Wolf’s Mouth” -a re-reading of Little Red Riding Hood- the words and illustrations of Fabian Negrin turn Collodi on his head. A story about escape: escape from conformity, from the commonplace, from monotony. And, most importantly, escape from ugliness. Prize: 2006 Liber Award
