Becoming real was only the start. Pinocchio got his wish, but finds there’s more to being human than having the right kind of body. Inside, he still feels like that same wooden puppet. In the wake of WWI, his struggle to fit into a human world leads to a deadly fight with a fascist officer and flight from the only home he’s ever known. From tramp steamers to stifling sweatshops, from love to bitter heartbreak, he can’t outrun his puppet past. Returning home years later, he discovers his beloved papa, Geppetto, was spirited away in the middle of the night into a Germany newly in Hitler’s grip. On his perilous journey, he finds a motley crew of allies, love, and an unexpected enemy who knows a secret about Pinocchio’s own magical origins that could help her enslave humanity.
Pinocchio’s Guide to the End of the World is a tale of friendship, love, and, ultimately, what it means to be real.”
Pinocchio’s Guide to the End of the World by Eva Moon
Pinocchio discovers himself lost and alone in a desolate wasteland as the world is about to end.
The once-vibrant trees have faded away, leaving only ash and dust in their wake. The atmosphere is spooky and silent, and the sky is dark and menacing.
Despite his fear, Pinocchio knows he must continue on. Even if it means confronting his greatest fears and worst demons, he must figure out how to survive in this new world.
Pinocchio surveys his surroundings as soon as he wakes up. In his search for survival, he looks for everything that can be useful. Though the water is tainted and muddy, he still drinks it after finding a little stream. He is aware that he must continue to drink if he wants to live.
Pinocchio then leaves to look for food. He searches the desolate wasteland for anything that could keep him alive. On a dead shrub, he finds some berries, but they are bitter and difficult to eat. Also, he encounters a dead animal, but he resists the urge to consume it. Instead, he keeps looking for food.
Pinocchio starts to discover that he is not alone as he wanders through the wilderness. He meets other survivors who are also trying to survive in this strange new world. While some are sympathetic and try to help him, others are vicious and take advantage of him.
Pinocchio gains valuable friendship and trust lessons as a result of everything that happens. He discovers that sometimes he must make difficult choices and accomplish feats he never believed he was capable of in order to survive.
Pinocchio comes to terms with the fact that he is no longer the wooden puppet he once was as the world ends. With each passing day, he has matured and evolved, growing stronger and wiser. He knows that he is capable of enduring anything because he has survived the end of the world.
The guide to the end of the world that Pinocchio offers is one of endurance, tenacity, and fortitude. It serves as a reminder that, despite how hopeless things may appear at the moment, there is always light at the end of the tunnel.
