Calvino does an excellent job of transporting the reader to his world thorugh this short story collection. Beautiful writing and imagery. His stories are both magical and mundane at the same time, and skewed just enough to be quirky without being weird. Alas, for me, not enough stories provided that je ne sais quoi--that emotional tug--that makes a book 5 star book. Certainly worth reading though.
