LoveReading View on Up in the Tree

This is a delightfully simple and light-hearted story told with a poetic jauntiness written and illustrated by one of the foremost literary novelists writing today. Two children love their home in a tree, they can feel the wind rushing by and they can dance in the branches. But when the ladder they use to get down is suddenly removed….life in the tree is not quite so much fun! Luckily there is a hugely satisfying resolution and the two children are able to be up in the tree and to get down when they need to!

Up in the Tree Synopsis

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!
