about

A graphic novel adaptation of Madeleine L'Engle's ground-breaking science fiction and fantasy classic, now a major motion picture.

"Know somebody who hasn't met Mrs Whatsit, Mrs Who or Mrs Which? Larson's colorful panels bring Madeleine 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

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. In the graphic novel, 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 delighting old fans and winning over new ones, this graphic novel adaptation is a must-read.

A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L'Engle is now a major motion picture from Disney, directed by Ava DuVernay, starring Storm Reid, Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon and Mindy Kaling.

Praise for A Wrinkle in Time: The Graphic Novel:

"Know somebody who hasn't met Mrs Whatsit, Mrs Who or Mrs Which? Larson's colorful panels bring Madeleine 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

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Daughter Loved This! I really enjoyed the movie and the original version so I thought I would give this one a go for my daughter who is really into graphic novels. Not only did she love the book, we had a chance to chat and discuss the difference between movie and book. The graphics are not as bright as some graphic novels, but fits the genre of the story.

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.
