The Tree Boy
Lonely Sid wasn't always a tree. But the day he misses saving a soccer goal at school, things change for him. He wakes up the next morning to discover he is no more the boy he used to be.
With an entire ecosystem hovering above him, he finds himself transformed into one of those brainless trees that he so detests.
Will he ever be back to being Sid again? And will his loneliness end?
Srividhya Venkat spins a delectable fantasy tale around thinking twice about what you wish for, or not, and about how Sid's lonely changes.
Nayantara Surendranath adds more quirkiness to the story with her eccentric combination of art collage and digital creation.
