Off they went to find him in the forest, and there atop a tall bael tree was their friend, sitting tight.

In the second part of the sentence, what is the subject, "there" or "their friend"?

  • It is easy to find. This is the reorded sentence: their friend was there atop a tall bael tree. So "their friend" is your answer. – user33000 Jun 1 '16 at 19:10

There atop a tall bael tree was their friend

By simply re-arranging the sentence, you can split it into subject, verb, object:

Their friend was there atop a tall bael tree

Subject: their friend is the person actually being atop the tall bael tree
