The Man Who Would Be Tree

So today, an old thought kept nagging me: when I was young, I used to go to the National Library on Stamford Road, and I once read a book about a boy who turned into a plant and started photosynthesising. And for the life of me I couldn't remember the title, even though the book obviously made some sort of impression on me. Well, for an 8-year-old, being able to photosynthesise is cool. Some Internet sleuthing has now made me conclude that it's probably Top Secret, by a man named John Reynolds Gardiner. Ahhhhhhhhhhhh. Relief.

The Internet: always wonderful at answering nagging trivia questions!

There's this cute page where a whole 4th grade class writes about the book.
