Classic toxic relationship — The kid’s narcissist and the tree’s an enabler. I had the same experience of remembering this book fondly, then reading it to my own children and being like: “No. Never be like either of these characters, ever. Don’t cut down other people to make a boat, and if you see someone coming towards you with an ax — run!”

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
