    Truly for all ages!

    I was surprised to find the flipkart rating on the book at just 3 stars, but since it had great reviews elsewhere I went ahead and ordered it. I was not disappointed.

    Its the story of a little boy and his friend - a tree. The boy changes, he grows up, his needs change, his likes change. The tree remains ever the same - granting everything the friend wants - literally a 'kalpavriksha'. Until, in the end, the boy has come full circle, and once again all he wants to do is to sit with his friend...

    Perfect product!

    Though the Matter in the book is very less, but very effective and thoughtful, inspiring and motivational. Tree sacrificed entire his life for the boy/man, but man could not leave his greediness. I have presented this beautiful book to my grand children.

    I found the story good but there is too much hype about this book. The price also I found not justified with the content. (This may not go well with many readers)

    International print quality and International price thats all I can say from India.
