When they came to a stop, they saw that they were in the dark belly of the whale.
“Are you okay?” said Pinocchio to the Cricket.
“I am fine,” said a voice of an old man.
“Wait a minute,” said Pinocchio. “Father, is that you?”
It was Geppetto!
“Father, Father, it’s me!” said Pinocchio.
“My son!” said Geppetto. “I thought I was dreaming!”
They hugged in joy.
“Look!” said Geppetto as three fish swam by. “There goes our dinner!”
“Father, I have an idea! Let’s make a fire.”
“Grilled fish tonight!” said Geppetto.
“No, I mean for us to get out!” said Pinocchio.
They gathered driftwood and got a flame going.
“This is how we can make the whale sneeze!” he said.
Pinocchio waved his arms over the flame to make a lot of smoke.
Soon, clouds of black smoke were rising up.
The whale coughed.
“Hang on!” said Pinocchio. And then . . . WHAM!!
In one big sneeze, Pinocchio, Geppetto and the Cricket flew out of the whale’s mouth.
Rolling over and over in the sea water, at last they rolled up onto the shore.
“Pinocchio?” Geppetto rose to his feet. The Cricket was there beside him. But where was Pinocchio?
And then they found him! Pinocchio was face down, his head in a puddle.
They were too late. Geppetto and the Cricket wept over Pinocchio, the boy puppet, who lay still in the water.
Then in a flash, who was there but the Blue Fairy!
“Pinocchio,” she said. “You saved your father. You proved that you are both brave and true.” She tapped his head with her wand. “And now you will be a real boy.”
“匹诺曹，” 她说，“你救了你的爸爸。你证明了你是勇敢真实的。” 她用魔杖点了他的头。“现在你将成为一个真正的男孩。”
Pinocchio woke up. He looked at his soft arms and soft legs.
“Father!” he cried out. “Look! I am a real boy!”
“That you are!” cried Geppetto.
The Blue Fairy turned to the Cricket. “Come,” she said. In a flash, the two of them were gone.
And Pinocchio and Geppetto lived many long and happy years together.
