Publisher's Description

Madeleine L'Engle's ground-breaking science fiction and fantasy classic, soon to be a major motion picture.

It was a dark and stormy night; Meg Murry, her small brother Charles Wallace, and her mother had come down to the kitchen for a midnight snack when they were upset by the arrival of a most disturbing stranger.

"Wild nights are my glory," the unearthly stranger told them. "I just got caught in a downdraft and blown off course. Let me sit down for a moment, and then I'll be on my way. Speaking of ways, by the way, there is such a thing as a tesseract."

A tesseract (in case the reader doesn't know) is a wrinkle in time. To tell more would rob the reader of the enjoyment of Miss L'Engle's unusual book. A Wrinkle in Time, winner of the Newbery Medal in 1963, is the story of the adventures in space and time of Meg, Charles Wallace, and Calvin O'Keefe (athlete, student, and one of the most popular boys in high school). They are in search of Meg's father, a scientist who disappeared while engaged in secret work for the government on the tesseract problem.

A Wrinkle in Time is the winner of the 1963 Newbery Medal. It is the first book in The Time Quintet, which consists of A Wrinkle in Time, A Wind in the Door, A Swiftly Tilting Planet, Many Waters, and An Acceptable Time.

A Wrinkle in Time is soon to be a movie from Disney, directed by Ava DuVernay, starring Storm Reid, Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon and Mindy Kaling.

This title has Common Core connections.

Author Bio

Madeleine L'Engle (1918–2007) was born in New York City and attended Smith College. She wrote more than 60 books, the most famous of which is A Wrinkle In Time (1962), winner of the Newbery Award in 1963. L'Engle continued the story of the Murry family from A Wrinkle In Time with seven other novels (five of which are available as A Wrinkle In Time Quintent from Square Fish). She also wrote the famous series featuring the Austin family, beginning with the novel Meet The Austins (1960). L'Engle revisited the Austins four more times over the next three decades, concluding with Troubling a Star in 1994. The story of the Austins had some autobiographical elements, mirroring Madeleine's life and the life of her family. Madeleine L'Engle's last book, The Joys of Love, is a romantic, coming-of-age story she wrote back in the 1940s, and is being published by FSG.

    After Margaret Murray and her baby brother encounter a strange visitor in their kitchen one night during a storm, they are whisked away on an incredible journey to find their missing father. Along the way, they will help fight a growing evil that threatens the entire universe. Some planets have already given in. Earth is in the middle of the struggle, though no one may realize it.

    It's no wonder that this is a classic. A wonderful blend of sci-fi and fantasy with overt Christian themes. There's no hiding the Christian message in this one. L'Engle's descriptiveness is just enough to help you imagine her world, but not overdone to the point that it slows the story. The characters are excellent, and the story keeps you engaged. This one is no doubt intended for children, but I think anyone can enjoy it at any age.

    Disappointing read; pagan beliefs exalted

    Our teenage daughter stopped reading this book after she came to the parts about Buddha and Gandhi as well as other non-Christians being a light in darkness and quotes Scripture to support this - pages 100-101, and also the next chapter is about "The Happy Medium" which uses a crystal ball.

    As her mother I was astonished since this series was recommended, so I read the entire series and found much to confuse scriptural basis. The concepts of time travel and such were interesting, but in the stretch to reach out to explore different beliefs and belief systems, one must be firmly grounded in the truth. This book and the series doesn't provide a firm foundation for that, in my opinion.

    A Wrinkle in Time is a beautiful and exciting introduction to a beautiful and exciting series! Meg, Calvin, and Charles Wallace are characters everybody can relate to and root for at the same time; brilliant characters, believable dialogue, vivid descriptions, hair-raising encounters and moments of mortal peril make this deep, thought-provoking book a sheer pleasure to read. Highly, highly reccommended!
