The Giving Tree

It would have been better if this book had ended by saying that the boy took the remains of the tree to be harvested and then put into a wood chipper and turned into pulp and then dried out and bonded and rolled and coated and then eventually made into a copy of the book The Giving Tree.

That would make it more of a forehead-slapper.

When reviewing a book for GoodReads or something, I say to myself: "Did I slap my forehead upon completion of this book? No? AUTOMATIC DEDUCTION OF ONE STAR!"

I couldn't agree more. On both counts.
