THE LUCKIEST ONE OF ALL
Who is the luckiest one of all? A boy perched up in a sycamore tree is pretty sure it can't be he.
"There are so many things I'd much rather be,"
Said a boy sitting up in a sycamore tree,
"And I wish I knew of some magical word
That would suddenly change me into a bird.
What a terrific treat it would be to go flying
High over the tree tops without even half trying!
Of all the wild creatures the bird is the one
Who seems to be having most of the fun."
Here are some of the characters that did not make it into the book.
