A Trio of Tolerable Tales
by Margaret Atwood and Dusan Petričic




Overview -
Wordplay and outrageous adventures rule the day in these three humorous stories from Margaret Atwood, with illustrations by Dusan Petricic. Now published together in a chapter book for the first time

In Rude Ramsay and the Roaring Radishes, Ramsay runs away from his revolting relatives and makes a new friend with more refined tastes.

The second tale, Bashful Bob and Doleful Dorinda, features Bob, who was raised by dogs, and Dorinda, who does housework for relatives who don't like her. It is only when they become friends that they realize they can change their lives for the better.

And finally, to get her parents back, Wenda and her woodchuck companion have to outsmart Widow Wallop in Wandering Wenda and Widow Wallop's Wunderground Washery.

Young readers will become lifelong fans of Margaret Atwood's work and the kind of wordplay that makes these tales such rich fare, whether they are read aloud or enjoyed independently. These compelling stories of resourceful children are a lively introduction to alliteration.
