Up in the TreeBook Plus CD - 2010
Includes audio CD 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. The delightful result reminds us that technology hasn't necessarily made things better.
This facsimile edition renders intact the unique pleasures of the original and includes an audio CD read by Margaret Atwood, with music and additional sound effects.
