New Children’s Book Coming from Margaret Atwood

Margaret Atwood

Author Margaret Atwood will soon have another children’s book published. According to Galleycat.com, the book will be called Wandering Wenda and Widow Wallop’s Wunderground Washery.

Canada’s McArthur & Company will publish the book this summer and Dusan Petricic will illustrate. Petricic previously worked with Atwood on Rude Ramsay and the Roaring Radishes and Bashful Bob and Doleful Dorinda. The book reportedly will incorporate the “alliterative wordplay” featured in Atwood’s other children’s books.

The publisher also shared more news (via the National Post) about two past Atwood-Petricic collaborations:

“McArthur & Company will re-publish Rude Ramsay and the Roaring Radishes and Bashful Bob and Doleful Dorinda in paperback, along with audio read by Margaret Atwood and enhanced e-books, in May 2011.”
