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 inWandering 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.
