Toby Fletcher's Fly-Away Tree
by Nicky Jones
Imagine flying free like a bird. Imagine changing into a bird then back into your own body at will. This is exactly what happens to Toby Fletcher. Bullied at school, Toby takes refuge in his hobby, bird watching. When the bullies hurt a blackbird, he rescues it, takes the fledgling home, and places it in his tree. This kind act turns an ordinary tree into a magical Fly-Away Tree.
