Two children rejoice in their home up in a tree,
free from parental guidance and earthbound
concerns. But when beavers gnaw their ladder
into matchsticks, the children aren't sure they
want to be quite so alone. Playful, whimsical, and
wry, the story is vintage Atwood. Long out of print,
Up in the Tree was first published in 1978.

Margaret Atwood is the internationally renowned author of such novels as "Oryx and Crake, Alias Grace", and "The Edible Woman". She is a novelist and a poet, and has also authored short story collections, critical studies, screenplays, radio scripts, and books.From Booklist:
The story of two smiling boys who enjoy sitting arriba en el árbol (up in a tree) without a care in the world before they realize that they can't get down is engagingly depicted in Azaola's sprightly Spanish rendition. Folding contemporary Spanish expressions into the easy, rhyming texts (“Cuando llueve es fatal . . . tenemos paraguas . . . ¡menos mal!”), Azaola adds an up-to-date tone to this edition of Atwood's original version, published in Canada in 1976. A playful read for beginning Spanish readers or a vocabulary builder for Spanish learners. Preschool-Grade 2. --Isabel Schon
