Playful, whimsical, and wry, Margaret Atwood’s story about two children who live up in a tree has attained classic status. When this charming book was first published in 1978, conventional wisdom stated that it was too expensive and risky to publish a children’s book in Canada. So Atwood not only wrote and illustrated the book herself, she also hand-lettered the type! The original edition of Up in the Tree was created the old-fashioned way, using only two colors that mixed together to produce a surprisingly large range of tones and textures, and this painstakingly created facsimile edition delivers intact to readers young and old the unique pleasures of the original. A wonderful story in a beautiful package, Up in the Tree is now ready for a new generation of readers.
