Once there was a tree...



















and she loved a little boy.



















And every day the boy would come



















and he would gather her leaves



















and make them into crowns
and play king of the forest.



















He would climb up her trunk



















and swing from her branches



















and eat apples.



















And they would play hide-and-go-seek.



















And when he was tired,
he would sleep in her shade.



















And the boy loved the tree...



















very much.



















And the tree was happy.
