Geppetto makes Pinocchio new feet, and sells
his own coat to buy him a Spelling-book.
No sooner had the puppet appeased his hunger than he began to cry and to grumble because he wanted a pair of new feet.
But Geppetto, to punish him for his naughtiness, allowed him to cry and to despair for half the day. He then said to him:
'Why should I make you new feet? To enable you, perhaps, to escape again from home?'
'I promise you,' said the puppet, sobbing, 'that for the future I will be good.'
