Regular price $200.00 Sale

Calvino's best selling novel tells the adventures of a boy who climbs up a tree to spend the rest of his life inhabiting an arboreal kingdom. Ironically, the more he distances himself from those below, the more he helps everyone on earth. The story is viewed as a metaphor for independence as well as being an amusing tale.
