The Giving Tree BSE023


'Once there was a tree...and she loved a little boy.'So begins a story of unforgettable perception, beautifully written and illustrated by the gifted and versatile Shel Silverstein.Every day the boy would come to the tree to eat her apples, swing from her branches, or slide down her trunk...and the tree was happy. But as the boy grew older he began to want more from the tree, and the tree gave and gave and gave.This is a tender story, touched with sadness, aglow with consolation. Shel Silverstein has created a moving parable for readers of all ages that offers an affecting interpretation of the gift of giving and a serene acceptance of another's capacity to love in return.

这是一个由一棵有求必应的苹果树和一个贪求不厌的孩子,共同组成的温馨,又略带哀伤的动人故事。爱心树的英文 “The Giving Tree”,顾名思义便是牺牲奉献的意思,但它亦是一本述说友谊的书。树并未因为男孩的予取予求感到难过,即使后来只剩下残干的他,是那么凄凉孤寂,但当男孩回到他身边只求一个安静的歇脚处时,树竟是满欣喜乐将自己奉献给他,这样的喜悦比起男孩小时在树上刻的 “M.E. + T.”那些甜蜜文字,更令他感到真切舒心。天才的绘本艺术家希尔弗斯坦以简单俐落的线条和充满诗意又带有嘲讽幽默的文字,为各个年龄的读者创造了一则令人心醒动容的寓言——在施与受之间,也在爱与被爱之间。 希尔弗斯坦的作品,原本设置的读者群是四岁到八岁的小孩,却成了所有年龄层的最爱,只因他的书,让人看了会笑、会感动、会永难忘怀。他的文字如同会舞动的诗句,字字句句,打入人心。
