9781554980802: Up in the Tree

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.

Oryx and Crake, was shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize in 2003. Her other books for children include Bashful Bob and Doleful Dorinda and Rude Ramsay and the Roaring Radishes.

From Booklist:

PreS-Gr. 2. First published in Canada in 1976, Atwood's small, whimsical book has been reprinted for U.S. distribution for the first time. In her author's note, Atwood mentions that she wrote and illustrated the book during a period in which two-color printing was common, and she says that she had hand-lettered the book to save money. The production does appear dated, but that doesn't detract from the appeal. Rendered in shades of red and blue, the fanciful illustrations extend the story of two saucer-eyed boys who live in a tree. The book resembles an easy reader: short sentences composed of basic vocabulary; rhythmic, repetitive phrases to help propel new readers through the story. Spare and simple, this title offers a refreshing return to basics. Gillian Engberg
