I think. I’ll make it into a puppet.” He set to work, and as the puppet boy took shape, the old man said, “He must have a name. I will call him Pinocchio.” As soon as he finished making the eyes, the carpenter was amazed to see them move. Before the mouth was made, it began to laugh. “Stop laughing!” the old man said.
