Margaret Atwood (pictured, via) will publish a new children’s book, Wandering Wenda and Widow Wallop’s Wunderground Washery. Canada’s McArthur & Company will publish the book this summer.
Dušan Petričić, who has worked with Atwood in the past on Rude Ramsay and the Roaring Radishes and Bashful Bob and Doleful Dorinda, will illustrate Wandering Wenda. According to the release, the new book incorporates the “alliterative wordplay” featured in Atwood’s other children’s books.
The publisher also shared this news about two past Atwood-Petričić 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.” (Via the National Post)
