--> In school today, Iíll learn to read, tomorrow to write, and the day after tomorrow Iíll do arithmetic. Then, clever as I am, I can earn a lot of money.

* AssholeVictim: The Fox and the Cat become handicapped for real and in misery. Their ending is sad, but their previous attempted murder of Pinocchio has cemented any possibility of feeling pity for them.

* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: a whole book, "Pinocchio: un libro parallelo" (Pinocchio: a parallel book), by Giorgio Manganelli, is dedicated to this aim. The author remarks that some figure are really ambiguous and suspended between life and death: the Blue Fairy appears to be the main one. On her first apparition, the Blue Fairy herself states to be a dead girl waiting for her coffin. She is very pale. Azure hair is often a characteristic of corpses. After Pinocchio is hanged by the Cat and the Fox and almost dead, she is declared a fairy and becomes a helper of the main character, a sort of surrogate sister and mother. After, she is said to be dead another time. Also the Cricket is innocently creepy (but not like the Fairy): now dead (killed by Pinocchio at the begin), now a ghost, now living (in the house of the Blue Fairy). A conjecture of Manganelli is that the Fairy was a dying goddess and mistress of beasts (dogs, woodpeckers, ...), and that the "sacrifice" of Pinocchio at the oak gave her a temporary new life. The fact that Pinocchio is originated by wood needs consideration, too and it is possible to think that Pinocchio has some hidden , unknown connection with her world.
