The Baron in the Trees written by the Italian author named Italo
The Baron in the Trees written by the Italian author named Italo Calvino was published in 1957. It is an excellent read for high school students as well as adults. One major reason it is such a great read for teenagers is that they can relate to it. They can relate to the fact that the main character runs away from home to live in the trees. Everyone at some point has run away from home, whether that is actually leaving home for a long period of time or just going out in your front yard and hiding from your parents. The author uses this technique to intrigue kids to read his book because they can relate to it. This book, however, does start out very slow and makes the reader wait quite a bit for excitement to occur. Overall, this book is a great book to read for all ages, however starts out very slowly and could have been more exciting at the start of the novel.Was this review helpful?
