Willowby, the unwitting hero of this Christmas classic, looks quite a bit like the little mustachioed mascot from Monopoly. But as befits a Yuletide tale, this diminutive millionaire turns out to be a good bit more generous. But it's just a little too big, so he asks his butler, Baxter, to trim off the top few feet that brush up against the parlor ceiling.

It also features Kermit the Frog as a narrator and various other Muppets created exclusively for the special. It was sponsored by Nabisco. The special was based on a 1963 book of the same name, by Robert Barry

Christmas is here and Mr. Willowby's tree has arrived. There's just one big problem: The tree is too tall for his parlor.

Christmas is here and Mr. He cuts off the top so it will fit, and soon the top of that tree is passed along again and again to bring holiday cheer to all the animals in the forest. Kids will love watching the tree move from home to home, and families will appreciate the subtle message of conservation and recycling, as the tree top spreads joy to so many of the forest dwellers. The Definitive Guide to. Mr. Willowby's Christmas Tree. Written by Robert Barry. Published by Random House Children's Books.

Mr. Willowby's Christmas tree is too tall, so he trims off the top and gives the top to the upstairs maid for her tree, and she finds it too tall, so she cuts off the top, which the gardener uses for his tree, but it is too tall.

I bought my 1st copy of this Christmas story in 2000 (my daughter was 3) and I read it to her all year long after that first 2000 Christmas. If u were to ask my daughter what is her fav it still is this sweet Christmas tale. Since that first copy I have prob purchased an another 20 copies.. every baby in our family has recieved one ...
And it has become expected with each new baby for my friends and family... it is a perfect gift ; date it and sign it ... it still sits on my now almost 20 yo daughter's shelf in her room..I have just given a copy to my great nephew ... the smiles and Christmas magic now have gone to the next generation...memories of nephews sitting all stuck together to see the pics and my daughter with her American girl doll close..all due to a wonderful story that I highly recommend and will continue to give to the Ones I love ... Thank you for a great tale of Christmas .

I am in the process of buying all of my favorite books that I remember from my childhood. This is a standout story that has become more relevant with the passing of time. When Mr. Willowby buys his Christmas tree, it's just a little too tall for his ceiling, so his butler lops off a foot or so off the top to make it fit in the parlor. When that treetop gets tossed out, instead of becoming trash, the neighborhood of animals discovers a way to recycle it so that that one tree blesses many little "fur families."

If you have a child or grandchild to whom you would like to read a lovely book with a delightful message and charming illustrations, this may become a lifetime favorite for him or her. It certainly has been for me.

Such a fun Christmas story - what seems like a minor decision ends up impacting so many people and creatures, bringing Christmas cheer to all. We don't celebrate any religious aspects of the holiday, but that tends to leave mostly stories of Santa. Not a problem, but it's nice to find something a little different to add to our collection.

This is the quintessential Christmas book for children. The story is told in a bouncy poetry format, and the illustrations are whimsical and just plain fun. The story is about a Christmas tree that is "shared" quite unexpectedly by a succession of animals. The concept is clever and charming,as each of the animal families finds its "tree" just a little to big for its purposes, and this leads to the cyclical nature of the tale, which, consequently, ends where it begins. Our children loved this book, our grandkids love this book, and I love reading it to them. We recently purchased copies of the book for the parents of two newborns, and now they, too, adore it. It's just a fun read with a message about sharing that is never "preachy." It will always be a Christmas favorite in our family.

Our family loves this story. It is so sweet and fun, it starts with Mr. Willowby and his tree which is too tall and he cuts the top of, then continues to go to many different homes and families who in turn cut the top of and someone new gets it. Love its message and it’s still fun and a repeate story through out the Christmas season in our houses

Great book!! With all the commercialism surrounding Christmas, this book is heart warming. After reading it a couple times, my son (3 years old) suggested we chop the top off of our tree to give to the chipmunks who frequent our patio. : ) Definitely one of our favorite Christmas books now.

This is a wonderfully sweet Christmas story about a very large Christmas tree that is cut and shared with a whole community. The underlying theme is essentially one man's trash is another's treasure, and could easily start conversations about generosity, charity, and gratefulness. It's written in rhyme and is thus delightful to read and to hear. We read as a family during the Christmas season and our five year old and three year old loved it. As we saw real Christmas trees around town, they would ask if they were as big or bigger than Mr. Willowby's tree, so I know the story stuck with them. One of our new family Christmas classics.
This is a very sweet book. You could say that it is about recycling (although that is not the writer's intention) because the VERY tall and elegant tree begins in a high-ceiling mansion, but is a wee bit too tall and thus the top gets cut and tossed. The piece is picked up and taken to another home where, again, it is a wee bit too tall. The pattern of cutting and finding continues until every bit of the original tree is used by homes here and there. You will be pleasantly surprised at whose homes Mr. Willowby's tree brings holiday joy.

This book was recommended to me by a friend and I have had it for years. My recent purchase is for my daughter's family!
