9781554989331: A Trio of Tolerable Tales

Wordplay and outrageous adventures rule the day in these three humorous stories from Margaret Atwood, with illustrations by Dušan 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.

Review:

Praise for A Trio of Tolerable Tales

"The exaggerated humor and outlandish situations call to mind Roald Dahl, but the hilarity in this alliterative tour de force is all its own. Fine exercise for stretching linguistic muscles; great fun for reading aloud." ― Kirkus, STARRED REVIEW

"The wide and varied vocabulary will enrich even the most erudite student; an excellent and unusual addition to most collections." ― School Library Journal

"Readers encountering these delightfully peculiar stories for the first time will be impressed by just how far Atwood runs with the alliteration, and despite what the title suggests, these tongue-twisting tales are far better than tolerable―they’re truly tickling." ― Publishers Weekly

Praise for Rude Ramsay and the Roaring Radishes

In lesser hands, such an extended use of alliteration might prove redundant, but Atwood’s prose is both amusing and enlightening in its use of rich vocabulary, with phrases such as rumpled rucksack,’ raggedy ravens’ and rancid remnants of reeking rhinoceros.’” — Kirkus Reviews

Praise forBashful Bob and Doleful Dorinda

offers champion read-aloud potential.” — Kirkus Reviews

Praise for Wandering Wenda and Widow Wallop’s Wunderground Washery

Wandering Wenda offers young readers a whimsical story about a girl searching for her missing parents. Atwood’s use of alliteration is an absolute delight. The playful nature of the text will captivate readers right from the beginning. They are sure to devour this tale just to see if the wordplay lasts until the very end.” — CM Magazine
