We all know the story of the “selfless” tree that gave all she had just to make sure a young boy was “happy.” This is a different tree. This is a different boy. This is a very different book. The Taking Tree is not pleased when the boy takes her twigs to pick on his sister, or when he cuts off her branches to build a house that he burns for insurance money. And the boy is not sorry at all. Ever. In fact, he’s kind of a jerk. So what happens when the tree finally gets fed up? Let’s just say the story doesn’t end sweetly with an old man sitting on a stump.

If you had a giraffe and he stretched another half … you would have a giraffe and a half. And if you glued a rose to the tip of his nose … And … if he put on a shoe and then stepped in some glue … And if he used a chair to comb his hair … And so it goes until … but that would be telling. Children will be kept in stitches until the very end, when the situation is resolved in the most riotous way possible. Shel Silverstein’s incomparable line drawings add to the hilarity of his wildly funny rhymes.

In Shel Silverstein's book The Giving Tree, a boy grows up and destroys the only good thing in his life that he has. He cuts down a perfectly good apple tree, ruins his life through bad decisions and somehow he is a hero that every child in America should read about. The Giving tree parody is about how his daughter takes his failures and profits from them. The illustrations are beautiful and inspiring because this book is meant to inspire all to achieve greatness and make the world a better place instead of tearing down and destroying that which was given to us.
