  • Short Description
Margaret Atwood's classic picture book is a perfect integration of words and pictures.

Margaret Atwood's classic picture book is a perfect integration of words and pictures.

This story about the adventures of two children who live up in a tree is vintage Atwood -- playful, whimsical and wry. The perfect integration of words and pictures creates a coherent and delightful whole.

When this charming book was first published in 1978, there was a widespread idea that it was too expensive and risky to publish a children's book in Canada. And so Margaret Atwood not only wrote and illustrated the book, she handlettered the type! The book was created in the old-fashioned way, using only two colors that mixed together to produce a surprisingly large range of tones and textures. The delightful result reminds us that technology hasn't necessarily made things better. This facsimile edition renders intact the unique pleasures of the original.

Spare and simple, this 30-year-old title offers a refreshing return to basics. - Booklist

The lyrical, rhyming text will delight even the youngest children, and early readers will be able to read the book independently. Highly recommended. - Resource Links

This could be a collectible - not just because it's Atwood. Because it still rocks....a gem of a book. - Sheree Fitch, New Brunswick Telegraph
