The Dancing Tree

Michelle Wasserman

Trevor is an African baobab tree who dreams of being able to dance. On full moon nights, while his family is sleeping, he watches the people in the valley below dance, twirl and clap around their campfire and he is filled with longing.

But Trevor's roots anchor him so strongly into the soil that he doesn't think he would ever be able to free himself. Until, that is, he gets a strange visitor who asks him a question: how does he know he can't dance until he has really tried?
