Playful, whimsical and wry, this is a beautiful picture book with a simple message at its heart. It is also classic Margaret Atwood and a wonderful gift for any lover of her words. Written, illustrated and hand-lettered by M.A., Up In the Tree was first published in 1978, and is the story of two children who make their home up in the branches of a tree, where they are free to do whatever they choose. But when the ladder they rely on to get back down again is destroyed, some of their freedom disappears, too, and the children begin to wonder what they might be missing, down amongst the ground dwellers - until they have an ingenious idea, which helps them to decide what they really prefer once and for all!

    Comments about Up in the Tree:

    This is an interesting book to add to a young child's library. It was originally printed when Margaret Atwood only had a choice of three colours (besides black), somewhat influenced by financial restraints she says. It remains as the original. That alone gives it a place in a young child's library. Enjoy!
