The first real lie in the story not told by Pinocchio, who does, however, repeat various fanciful inaccuracies almost as soon as he can speak, but by Geppetto,
who his coat in order to buy Pinocchio a schoolbook and lies to the boy, telling him that he sold it “Because I found it too hot.”
Pinocchio what his maker has really done, “and unable to restrain the impulse of his good heart he sprang up, and throwing his arms around
Geppetto’s neck he kissing him again and again.”
So Pinocchio does
Pinocchio does a good heart and a subtle enough intelligence
to that though Geppetto has lied to Pinocchio, he has done so out of kindness; it’s simply that Pinocchio likes to misbehave,
and he hasn’t the ways of the world yet.
When the fox and the cat come along, he is easily into temptation.
