WHY SHOULD YOUR LLAMA GET ALL THE DRAMA?
IT'S ALWAYS CARNIVAL SEASON AT THE THEATER!
Theater and drama are a window into history and culture and a great influence on history and culture: we see ourselves in our stories: think greek tragedies, Medieval travelling players, Broadway Musicals and the film culture of Europe and Hollywood.
In addition to being a good story for children, Pinocchio is a good example of what Tolkien the thinker means when he says Faerie is not only for children but for all people.
While the highest form of drama is usually tragedy, because life is so full of unhappy situations, even the wooden puppet created by Geppetto seems destined for a bad end, but the introduction of Faerie or "La fata" into the story makes a happy ending workable.

When it comes to teaching people to be good and truly wise, it doesn't get much more on point then the story of Pinocchio.
People across the world know Pinocchio as a disney Cartoon or a marionette doll.
Pinocchio started out as a series of short stories published in a kid's magazine in the 1800s, but ended up being a very popular fable about learning: not just information but wisdom.
None of us wants to be a jackass, and Captain Ahab isn't the only one who doesn't want to end up in the belly of the whale!
