Illustrated by Claire Fletcher.
Erica loves to dream beneath her Dreaming Tree, a cherry tree at the end of the road where she lives. But one day in spring when her tree is in its full glory, she discovers that it has to be chopped down so that the road can be widened.
Erica leaps into action, persuading her family and friends to get together a petition during the summer holidays to save the tree. But summer turns into autumn, and there is no response to the petition.
Then one cold winter morning, the workmen turn up to chop down the tree. But Erica's efforts have not been in vain - her Dreaming Tree is transported to her very own front garden.
An imaginative girl triumphs over the realities of urban life in this uplifting story.
