Have you ever desired not to touch the ground any more?,

This review is from: The Baron in the Trees (Harbrace Paperbound Library) (Paperback)
"The Baron in the Trees" by Italo Calvino tells the astonishing story of Cosme, a boy who decided to climb a tree and never touch the ground again.
The book shows his life from the moment he decided to rebel against his family in such a strange way till the day he "passed away". Talks about someone who didn't want to belong to the same world of the "ground-walkers".
It's a nice fable, and as many nice fables, talk about big truths about human beings, even the ones which do not climb the trees to scape - or fight against - his problems.
