About the Author
Madeleine L'Engle (1918-2007) was the author of many acclaimed books for children.
Hope Larson is the author of Salamander Dream, Gray Horses, Chiggers, and Mercury. She won a 2007 Eisner Award. She lives in Los Angeles, California.
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.
In the middle of a stormy night, a mysterious stranger shows up at the household of Meg Murry and her brother Charles Wallace with knowledge about disappearance of their father--the stranger explains that there is such a thing as a tesseract, a method of traveling through space and time. The two siblings are joined by Calvin O'Keefe, a popular boy with uncanny communication skills, and the three of them venture across the universe to confront a dark force called IT and save Mr. Murry.
