the tree who set

healthy boundaries

a parody alternate ending for

Shel Silverstein's "The Giving Tree"

part of the "Topher Fixed It" series for young people

Just read "The Giving Tree" as usual, right up to the point where the Boy comes hustling for a house. Then feel free to print these pages and read as an alternative to everything that follows.

The alternate endings are available for you to print for free. If you enjoy them, I happily accept tips via PayPal, which helps keep the site going. (I'm a writer. I'm poor. But happy.)

And I hope you'll learn more about The Atlanta Artist Relief Fund, which is providing crucial assistance to my colleagues during the COVID crisis.
