Kids’ CBC adapting Margaret Atwood’s Wandering Wenda


Margaret Atwood’s alliterative Wenda will be wandering to television screens in winter 2017, Kids’ CBC has announced.

The animated series from Breakthrough Entertainment, inspired by Atwood’s children’s book The Wide World of Wandering Wenda, began production last November.

“I’m delighted that Wenda has wandered her way into the wild world of television and wish her well on her adventures,” Atwood said in a release.

The series will follow Wenda, along with her friends Wu and Wesley Woodchuck, through a series of magical adventures where Wenda often uses her words to get out of trouble.

“Each episode will be a whimsical, globe-trotting adventure of sound, word and letter exploration aimed at early readers,” the Kids’ CBC release said.
