The Adventures of Pipi the Pink Monkey, Paperback

The Adventures of Pipi the Pink Monkey Paperback

Edited by Alessandro Gallenzi

Illustrated by Axel Scheffler


Pipi isn't like his four brothers or the other young monkeys living in the forest of Hullabaloo: he has bright-pink fur, a mischievous character and a rebellious streak that lands him into all sorts of scrapes.

In this story, an expanded version of Collodi's original tale, we see him lose his tail to an ancient crocodile, end up as a valet to a young master, fall into the hands of flying bandits and become emperor of a tribe of apes, before preparing to set off on a long journey at sea. Collodi wrote this story immediately after Pinocchio, and the little monkey's adventures present clear similarities, both in terms of themes and characters, with his more celebrated masterpiece.

This rediscovered gem of Italian literature is here adapted and expanded by Alessandro Gallenzi.
