This was a funny parody, I think most people in their late twenties to mid thirties would enjoy this book.

It's a parody - make of it what you will. Then again, I've never liked The Giving Tree....

Horrible book. Inappropriate for little kids! Should really be in adult section.

The tree said: I'm an Oak tree, when have you ever seen me grow apples?
