Story Summary

Alberto owned an apple tree whose branches spread over the fence to his neighbor's yard. It troubled him that anyone but himself would benefit from his beautiful tree and was really upset when his neighbor brought him an apple cake made with apples from his tree ... until he discovered the truth about his neighbor's generosity.
