THE TAKING TREE was written by Los Angeles comedy writer Dan Ewen, and illustrated by animator and Columbus College of Art and Design luminary, Tom Richner. It is the first children’s book parody from the pair, though a few more are already in the works. Dan and Tom would love to make a habit of this. Thanks for stopping by.
THE TAKING TREE (the unauthorized parody that is absolutely, positively, completely not THE GIVING TREE) is a hilarious twist on the Shel Silverstein classic. This humor book is no touching salute to goodness and generosity. Instead this laugh-a-minute satire is a scathing indictment of those who just take and take and take. That means you, trees!
