Publisher's Description

In A Swiftly Tilting Planet by Madeleine L'Engle, a companion to the Newbery Award winner A Wrinkle in Time and A Wind in the Door, fifteen-year-old Charles Wallace and the unicorn Gaudior undertake a perilous journey through time in a desperate attempt to stop the destruction of the world by the mad dictator Madog Branzillo. They are not alone in their quest. Charles Wallace's sister, Meg--grown and expecting her first child, but still able to enter her brother's thoughts and emotions by "kything"--goes with him in spirit. Charles Wallace must face the ultimate test of his faith and his will as he is sent within four people from another time, there to search for a way to avert the tragedy threatening them all.

Author Bio

Madeleine L'Engle (1918-2007) was the Newbery Medal-winning author of more than 60 books, including the much-loved A Wrinkle in Time. Born in 1918, L'Engle grew up in New York City, Switzerland, South Carolina and Massachusetts. Her father was a reporter and her mother had studied to be a pianist, and their house was always full of musicians and theater people. L'Engle graduated cum laude from Smith College, then returned to New York to work in the theater. While touring with a play, she wrote her first book, The Small Rain, originally published in 1945. She met her future husband, Hugh Franklin, when they both appeared in The Cherry Orchard.

Upon becoming Mrs. Franklin, L'Engle gave up the stage in favor of the typewriter. In the years her three children were growing up, she wrote four more novels. Hugh Franklin temporarily retired from the theater, and the family moved to western Connecticut and for ten years ran a general store. Her book Meet the Austins, an American Library Association Notable Children's Book of 1960, was based on this experience.

Her science fantasy classic A Wrinkle in Time was awarded the 1963 Newbery Medal. Two companion novels, A Wind in the Door and A Swiftly Tilting Planet (a Newbery Honor book), complete what has come to be known as The Time Trilogy, a series that continues to grow in popularity with a new generation of readers. Her 1980 book A Ring of Endless Light won the Newbery Honor. L'Engle passed away in 2007 in Litchfield, Connecticut.

Editorial Reviews

Charles Wallace (A Wrinkle in Time), now 15, Meg, and the Murrys reappear in an intricately woven fantasy in which the boy time-spins through a tangle of history to find and mend the broken link that threatens to disturb the harmony of today.

    Person indwelling other beings; confusing

    After my teenage daughter stopped reading the first book because of scriptural problems, I as her mother decided to investigate this series to see why they were recommended. I found a lot of scriptural confusion and no strong scriptural basis to encourage kids' walk in the Lord.

    Book 3 deals with a main character indwelling different beings in time to "help them" make other decisions that would affect the history of today. Personally, I find this concerning. The Bible mentions that the Holy Spirit indwells us to help us and that demons can indwell people who don't believe in Jesus. If we are to be responsible before God for our decisions, how can this judgment be valid if some other human being living inside us is "helping us" choose what to do?

    This series has interesting concepts scientifically, but has much to confuse children about scriptural issues, in my opinion.

    Like all the magnificent Time Quintet books, A Swiftly Tilting Planet is jewel in the crown of imaginative literature. A closer look at a previously unsympathetic character is both fascinating and heartbreaking. The similar names (Zylle, Zillah, Zillie; Madoc, Maddock, Maddox) are a joy. Courage, love, humility, and the need for peace and selflessness are all major themes. Highly reccommended!
