Where should I start with Calvino? Should he be read in any particular order?

Italian here so I don't know about translation but his prose is pretty simple (even if it's great), I read The Baron In The Trees, The Nonexistent Knight and The Cloven Viscount when I was 12 yo.
Don't worry about the order, you can start even from his more avantgarde stuff without any problem. But do it, it's great.

Don't worry about order. Invisible cities and If on a Winter's are two of the best books ever written. Although we don't talk about him much, he's one of the few authors that lit has almost unanimously liked for the past 4 years that I've been here, and deserves that fame.
