Pinocchio converts to Islam in Turkish books.
Pinocchio, Tom Sawyer and other characters have been converted to Islam in new versions of 100 classic stories on the Turkish school curriculum.
“Give me some bread, for Allah’s sake,” Pinocchio says to Geppetto, his maker, in a book stamped with the crest of the ministry of education.
“Thanks be to Allah,” the puppet says later.
In The Three Musketeers, Aramis converts to Islam. Tom Sawyer learns Islamic prayers in Arabic. Pollyanna cites the Koran. Heidi prays to Allah.
The Islamic publishers are in trouble with the government. Turkey is a secular state, though the premier comes from an Islamic party.
