The Baron in the Trees (Harbrace Paperbound Library, 72) by Italo Calvino
The Baron in the Trees (Harbrace Paperbound Library, 72)

This book was really unique. I had to read it in my 11th grade English class, but I didn't dread reading what I am assigned as I usually do because this was a pretty humorous and well-written book. Calvino illustrates the ironies of social class and conformity. This book appears to have been flawlessly translated to english.

I would also recommend Calvino's "The Nonexistent Knight" and "The Cloven Viscount" (2 novels that are published together in one paperback book).
