Back home in Brazil, Roberto loved playing football. Now he lives in Ireland, and he'd really like to have a game with the boys in the park, but he's too shy. When his granny reminds him of the Brazilian story of the dreaming tree, he doesn't see how a story can help him! But maybe it can! This is a new series of books for modern, multi-cultural Ireland for children aged 6-8."
