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.
Margaret Atwood is one of the world's preeminent writers -- winner of the Booker Prize, the Scotiabank Giller Prize, and the Governor General's Literary Award, among many other honours. She is the bestselling author of more than thirty-five books of poetry, fiction, and nonfiction, including The Handmaid's Tale, Alias Grace, The Blind Assassin, and Oryx and Crake. She and her spouse, writer Graeme Gibson, are the Joint Honourary Presidents of the Rare Bird Club within Birdlife International. She is an International Vice President of PEN.
This could be a collectible - not just because it's Atwood. Because it still rocks....a gem of a book.
...a whimsical story of two big-eyed kids who, indeed, live in a tree....for those who think Atwood can't do cute, think again.
The lyrical, rhyming text will delight even the youngest children, and early readers will be able to read the book independently. Highly recommended.
A delightful addition for any school, library or personal collection! Highly recommended.
...little people will...become enchanted by the sounds and cadence of the words in Up in The Tree.
Spare and simple, this 30-year-old title offers a refreshing return to basics.
