こんにちは皆さん、
I am reading a book called 大きな木.
for those familiar with the story, the tree has just given the man permission to cut its branches etc to build his house.
The story then says..
木はそれでうれしかった。
たが、男はまたねがいあいだこなかった。
そして男がひょっこりもどってくると木はうれしくてものも言えないほどだった。

the third line i am having difficulty with. here is my interpretation.
is the の in うれしてもの a nominaliser?

the first line. because of that the tree was happy.
second line. however the man once again did not come back for a long...
