The Last Tree
A boy lives in a big city. The only place where he’s found any plants has just thirteen blades of grass. One day, his friend tells him to follow him, and they go to where the friend shows him a sapling tree. The next morning, they see a newspaper ad showing where the tree is and saying a building is going to be built right there. So they run there quickly and dig it up and plant it in a safe place. Many years later they go back to see the tree, and they have both grown.
This is not a very fun book. The story is not very interesting, and not very much happens. The pictures are very gray and gloomy. It is very sad because this tree is the last tree, and there are no plants or any green things. The message is a message that is pretty popular and has been around a while – that our world is turning into a pretty dull, unforested place. But the majority of people aren’t acting on that message, even though they have heard this message over and over again, so they probably won’t respond. It is pretty sad.
