The Dreaming Tree
A young adult novel about a boy living in a boarding school; a boy
who is bullied by others in the school and who is very lonely and
misunderstood. While trying to cope with his various problems, he
finds solace in the woods and becomes especially enraptured by a
giant old oak, in the hollows of which live a variety of creatures.
The boy often climbs to the sturdy uppermost branches where he sits
and observes the nature around him. On those high branches he also
pretends he is many different things and dreams of what he may one
day become. Originally published in hardcover 1968 by Little, Brown
& Co., Boston, Mass. Never published in paperback.
