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.

Transcending Boundaries: Writing for a Dual Audience of Children and Adults is a collection of essays on twentieth-century authors who cross the borders between adult and children's literature and appeal to both audiences. This collection of fourteen essays by scholars from eight countries constitutes the first book devoted to the art of crosswriting the child and adult in twentieth-century international literature. Sandra Beckett explores the multifaceted nature of crossover literature and the diverse ways in which writers cross the borders to address a dual readership of children and adults. It considers classics such as Alice's Adventures in Wonderland and Pinocchio, with particular emphasis on post-World War II literature. The essays in Transcending Boundaries clearly suggest that crossover literature is a major, widespread trend that appears to be sharply on the rise.

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.

The Giving Tree takes you beyond a Christianity that exists only as a title or a good idea and transports you into a living experience with the extraordinary God of the Bible-the One who still does miracles in the lives of ordinary people. Filled with empowering testimonies that touch the heart as well as clear biblical teaching that strengthens the soul, The Giving Tree dares you to believe in a supernatural lifestyle where heaven really breaks forth, Jesus still heals, demons still flee, and God still provides. For every person who ever wondered whether there is more, whether Jesus is real, or whether he cares-this book is for you. Not only is it for you, it is about you. Be prepared to be called you into your destiny as a child of God. Every single one of God's children was created to hear his voice and release his glory and power on the earth through the spoken Word. This is the "Christ in you, the hope of glory" (Colossians 1:27). The Giving Tree is a powerful invitation into this calling.
