Geppeto dreamed of having a son of his own. Then one day he carefully and lovingly carved himself a boy puppet named "Pinocchio". Pinocchio tried to be a "real boy", but failed to do so because of his wooden head. Then when Pinocchio realized that his selfishness was only going to land him in the belly of a whale he knew that he needed help. Geppeto called out to Pinocchio, and Pinocchio dared to risk his life to save him. The miracle of all was when Pinocchio was given the privilege of being what he always wanted...a real boy...a beloved SON.
