Description

The world already knows Meg and Charles Wallace Murry, Calvin O'Keefe, and the three Mrs--Who, Whatsit, and Which--the memorable and wonderful characters who fight off a dark force and save our universe in the Newbery award-winning classic A Wrinkle in Time. But in 50 years of publication, the book has never been illustrated.  Now, Hope Larson takes the classic story to a new level with her vividly imagined interpretations of tessering and favorite characters like the Happy Medium and Aunt Beast. Perfect for old fans and winning over new ones, this graphic novel adaptation is a must-read.

Praise For A Wrinkle in Time

“Know somebody who hasn’t met Mrs Whatsit, Mrs Who or Mrs Which? Larson’s colorful panels bring Madeline L’Engle’s brilliant time-travel favorite to life in an exciting new way. This is page-turning eye candy of the highest order.” --James Patterson

“This adaptation is fabulous for presenting a fresh vision to those familiar with the original, but it’s so true to the story’s soul that even those who’ve never read it will come away with a genuine understanding of L’Engle’s ideas and heart.” – Booklist, starred review

“The memorable story of Meg Murry, Charles Wallace Murry, and Calvin O’Keefe’s adventure across space and time is conveyed with all the intellectual and emotional impact of the original novel.” -- BCCB

“Larson has remained true to the story, preserving the original chapter format and retaining L’Engle’s voice. Black-and-white artwork is accented with blue, echoing the original cover color.” – School Library Journal
