So, Ms. Atwood wrote, illustrated and hand lettered the type, and to further save costs, only two colors were used as three would have been too expensive. She admits that both the methods and results were somewhat primitive.

Margaret Laurence, Quarry. Up in the Tree (1978). Anna's Pet (with Joyce Barkhouse) (1980). For the Birds (1990). Margaret Atwood is one of the most intelligent and talented writers to set herself the task of deciphering life in the late-twentieth century. It is quite simply superb. In this disturbing book, Margaret Atwood has written a fascinating, sometimes frightening novel about our Canadian landscape, about our paranoia, about what we are and what we are becoming. Surfacing is likely the best piece of fiction produced by Atwood's generation in North America or anywhere.

By coincidence, a book by Gabrielle Roy was the set text in my final year in high school, in the 1950s. That book was La Petite Poule d’Eau ( The Little Water Hen, the name of a river), translated rather infelicitously as Where Nests the Water Hen, which makes it sound Victorian and poetic. I’m of an age to have grown up on paperback anthologies of great literary short stories by the masters of the form, so I was reading Hemingway, Katherine Mansfield, James Joyce, William Faulkner, Morley Callaghan, Katherine Anne Porter, John Updike and their generation when I was still in high school.

Two children rejoice in their home up in a tree, free from parental guidance and earthbound concerns. But when beavers gnaw their ladder into matchsticks, the children aren’t sure they want to be quite so alone. Playful, whimsical, and wry, the story is vintage Atwood. Long out of print, Up in the Tree was first published in 1978. Because it was considered too expensive and risky to publish a children’s book in Canada, Atwood not only wrote and illustrated the book, but hand-lettered the type. This facsimile edition captures all the charm of the original, and makes a thoughtful gift for Atwood fans as well as for young readers.

perfect for all ages
lovely children's book, those I teach enjoyed it.
Seller shipped as promised. This children's book by Margaret Atwood is also illustrated by her. This is a must read for parents- who live in the mind of a child.
This is a rather simple little book but it holds enormous appeal for quite a number of people; myself included. Margaret Atwood has written several children's books in addition to this one which includes such works as "Anna's Pet" (1980), "For the Birds" (1990), "Princess Prunella and the Purple Peanut," (1995), "Rude Ramsay and the Roaring Radishes" (2003), and Bashful Bob and the Doleful Dorinda," (2004). While all are good books, the one being reviewed here is my favorite. (There may quite well be more that I am unaware of...if you know of them, please add the titles to the comment section here).

This is a story of two wide-eyed little children who live in a tree with an owl. There is a ladder leading up into the tree and one day two beavers come along and reduce their wooden staircase to a bunch of chips! What will they do? "Oh moan! Oh groan! There is not telephone. Are we stuck FOREVER in this horrible tree?" Well as chance would have it, a very large masked bird comes to their rescue. The children then build a permanent ladder of boards nailed to the trunk of the tree and all is well.

This is truly a rather odd little picture book and as I said, it appeals to me greatly in a sort of quirky way. The text is simple with short sentences and workable words. It is ideal for the young beginning reader. To be hones, this book reminds me a lot of Dr. Seuss in the over all feel and tone, but is more laid-back and mellow than most Seuss books....not the "edge" or intensity you find in some of his work.

And the art work! It is interesting to note that the publisher of this work (And please note that the author was the illustrator of this book and that the text is hand lettered by same author), did not want to sink a lot of money into this project so only two colors were used and we get both pictures and text in all sorts of shades of red, blue and brownish color. The art work looks as if it came from the primitive school which makes it all the more appealing as far as I am concerned.

Kids seem to love this thing and so do I which probably says quite a bit about me as a person I suppose. My wife is constantly asking me what I want to be when I grow up...I have half a mind to tell her I want to live in a tree with an old owl.

I love this book as much as everything else I've read from Atwood. It's difficult sometimes to explain children certain concepts but this book helped me to explain the importance of freedom of choice. Sure the best thing in the world for these kids is their tree but when they are forced to be there all the time they really hate it and can only start loving it again when they are helped by others to build a ladder to be able to come and go as they please.
This is, I believe, Margarent Atwood's only children's book. She both wrote and illustrated it. It is a wonderful, creative, "different" and witty story. My boys identify with the adorable characters.
