-Poptropica Help Blog Sneak Peaks-
Welcome to another wonderful week of ‘Poptropica Help Blog Sneak Peaks’. These posts are posted every week on Sundays. In every new post there will be stories that only we have. And only we post them. These stories are classified and are very secret.
This week’s story is ”The Little Wooden Boy”, It is about a puppet that wants to become a boy.
-The Little Wooden Boy-
I’m not a puppet, I’m a real boy.
Geppetto, a poor old wood carver, was making a puppet from a tree branch. “You shall be my little
boy,” he said to the puppet, “and I shall call you ‘Pinocchio’.” He worked for hours, carefully carving each detail. When he reached the mouth, the puppet started making faces at Geppetto. “Stop that, you naughty boy,” Geppetto scolded, “Stop that at once !” “I won’t stop !” cried Pinocchio.
“You can talk !” exclaimed Geppetto.
“Of course I can, silly,” said the puppet. “You’ve given me a mouth to talk with.” Pinocchio rose to his feet and danced on the table top. “Look what I can do !” he squealed.
“Pinocchio, this is not the time to dance,” Geppetto explained. “You must get a good night’s rest. Tomorrow you will start going to school with the real boys. You will learn many things, including how to behave.”
On his way to school the next morning, Pinocchio stopped to see a puppet show. “I can dance and sing better than those puppets and I don’t need strings,” boasted Pinocchio. He climbed onto the stage.
“Get off my stage,” roared the Puppet Master. Then he noticed how much the crowd liked Pinocchio. He did not say anything and let Pinocchio stay. “Here, you’ve earned five copper coins,” the Puppet Master told Pinocchio.
“Take these coins and go straight home,” said the Puppet Master. Pinocchio put the coins into his sack.
He did not go very far before he met a lame Fox and a blind Cat. Knowing that Pinocchio had money, they pretended to be his friends. “Come with us. We’ll teach you how to turn those copper pieces into gold,” coaxed the sneaky Cat.
“We want to help you get rich. Plant your coins under this magic tree. In a few hours they’ll turn to gold,” said the Fox.
“Show me where,” said Pinocchio excitedly. The Cat and Fox pointed to a patch of loose dirt. Pinocchio dug a hole and put the sack in it, marking the spot with a stone.
“Splendid !” exclaimed the Cat. “Now let’s go to the inn for supper.” After supper, the Fox and Cat, who weren’t really lame or blind, quickly snuck away and disguised themselves as thieves. They hid by the tree waiting for Pinocchio to come back and dig up the money. After Pinocchio dug up the coins they pounced on him.
“Give us your money!” they ordered. But Pinocchio held the sack between his teeth and resisted to give the sack to them. Again they demanded, “Give us your money !”
Pinocchio’s Guardian Fairy, who was dressed all in blue and had blue hair, sent her dog, Rufus, to chase the Fox and Cat away. She ordered Rufus to bring Pinocchio back to her castle. “Please sit down,” she told Pinocchio. Rufus kept one eye open to watch what was going on.
“Why didn’t you go to school today?” she asked Pinocchio in a sweet voice.
“I did,” answered Pinocchio. Just then, his nose shot out like a tree branch. “What’s happening to my nose?” he cried.
“Every time you tell a lie, your nose will grow. When you tell the truth, it will shrink,” said the Blue Fairy.
“Pinocchio, you can only become a real boy if you learn how to be brave, honest and generous.”
The Blue Fairy told Pinocchio to go home and not to stop for any reason. Pinocchio tried to remember what the Blue Fairy told him…
