About this product
- DescriptionImagine 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. Brimming with an excitement that leaps from the page, Toby Fletcher's Fly-Away Tree is a fast paced woodland fantasy adventure featuring nine year old Toby and his younger sister Isobel. Toby is being bullied at school. He takes refuge in his hobby, bird watching, and when the bullies hurt a young blackbird, he rescues it. This kind act turns what was an ordinary apple tree in Toby's garden into a magical Fly-Away Tree. What children say about Toby Fletcher's Fly-Away Tree: Lauren: I felt really sorry for Toby when he was being bullied by Mark and David. The characters are really believable. Duncan: I love the way the author always leave me wanting to kw more at the end of each chapter. Amy: I enjoyed the description of the tree, in fact, I enjoyed all of the descriptive writing. It builds a really good picture in my mind. Yasmin: When I read the first page I got a tear in the corner of my eye because the story is so good. Mark: When I finished reading the first chapter I was engrossed. Toby Fletcher's Fly-Away Tree is my favourite thing in the book because it sounds mystical and exciting. I love the part when the children change into birds and the way the forest is described; it really put a picture in my head.
