Gr 7 Up—With her graphic novel debut, acclaimed author Atwood tells the story of Strig, an ordinary man who mutates into a strange owl/cat/human hybrid because of a secret formula. Featuring familiar tropes—an unlikely superhero and an evil villain who laughs maniacally as he plans to take over the world—the tale is reminiscent of classic superhero comics. Added to the mix are Cate, Strig's coworker and love interest, and an entire underground community of hybrid creatures. The artwork is colorful, vibrant, and filled with action. Atwood's introduction explains how and why this book was created, touching on her childhood interest in comics and her adult pursuit of bird conservation. Overall, this is a well-intentioned book that sometimes feels too purposeful. There are pieces of statistical information and website links about cats scattered throughout. Often, these facts feel preachy and overly educational (for instance, a reminder of "The Importance of Fixing Your Cat"), and the placement is at times jarring, breaking up the narrative flow. VERDICT An attractive but sometimes disjointed offering; for larger collections with superhero fans seeking additional materials.—Andrea Lipinski, New York Public Library

The Tent (mini-fictions) and Moral Disorder (short fiction) both appeared in 2006. Her most recent volume of poetry, The Door, was published in 2007. In Other Worlds: SF and the Human Imagination, a collection of non-fiction essays appeared in 2011. Her non-fiction book, Payback: Debt and the Shadow Side of Wealth was adapted for the screen in 2012. Ms. Atwood's work has been published in more than forty languages, including Farsi, Japanese, Turkish, Finnish, Korean, Icelandic and Estonian. Margaret Atwood currently lives in Toronto with writer Graeme Gibson.

I guess there is only so much one can squeeze out of the rattiness of rats while real people are bombed and burned to death and brought to our living room in living color daily. This just does not cut it, everything is too 'girly'.
Maybe I am not the target audience but I will buy the next one as well.
Great for any collection. I wish I could buy the physical books, but we are running out of space in our library. So I bought all three volumes on Comixology (an Amazon company) during thanksgiving (each one was ~$5-$6). Great read. Loved it.
