Includes the story read by Margaret Atwood, with music and additional sound effects.
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.
This edition renders intact the unique pleasures of the original and includes the story read by Margaret Atwood, with music and additional sound effects.

Up in the Tree
Amazing children's book!
I did not know that Margaret Atwood had written a Children's book!
What a profound message with a friend everything is possible!
By Colette Brown
I received a message from my Dad who passed away in 1966 to continue writing Children's book. On the anniversary of his death I found a penny and the year on the penny was 1978...
And I discovered this treasure of a
book! I purchased the e-book that Margaret Atwood re published in 2012!
