Summary
Exhausted from his labors, a man chopping down a great kapok tree in the Brazilian rain forest puts down his ax, and, as he sleeps, the animals who live in the tree plead with him not to destroy their world. This modern fable with its urgent message contains an abundance of information in the text and in the lush paintings that portray the wildlife and vegetation of the area
