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.

Never has a novel of classic literature been adapted with such vivid imagination and eye-popping pictures. The graphic novel adaptation of A Wrinkle in Time brings just the right amount of justice to the story Madeleine L'Engle had created over 50 years ago, giving new life to the adventures of Meg, Charles, and Calvin. This is also a good learning experience for several reasons: Mrs Who is often reciting quotes in different languages (which she then translates), Meg teaches us about the differences between a square's dimensions, and so on. Despite some rather simplistic dialogue, there is simply no reason to ignore this astounding adaptation--it's a great throwback for those who've read the original, and it'll be mesmerizing for those who aren't quite ready yet.
