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

Interesting story but I disliked the character of Meg a lot...she was whiny and insufferable. Also at times the story was a little far fetched, even for a sci-fi book.

The first graphic novel a

The first graphic novel adaptation of the science fiction classic, this book follows the original story of Meg Murray, her gifted little brother Charles Wallace, and their friend Calvin O'Keefe as they must travel through a "wrinkle in time" to save their father and the universe from a nameless darkness. Hope Larson's fast-paced, packed-in panels of black-and-white inked illustrations with blue shading create a darker, more serious tone for this suspenseful adventure, which is appropriate given the more serious themes the child-protagonists wrestle with in the book; the battle between the forces of good and evil in this story are manifested through the broken families and isolation the children experience in their everyday lives, as well as the saving power of love, all of which takes distinctly Christian view. Moreover, at 390 pages (divided into 12 chapters) this graphic novel is long, but despite its intimidating thickness, reluctant YA readers will find that it reads quickly, and eager readers may be encouraged to discover the original story. Overall, as a new, attractive presentation of an acclaimed novel, this book is definitely worth the price for any library.

Published to coincide wit

Published to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the original work, Hope Larson's adaptation takes L'Engle's words and makes them into a graphic novel. The story remains unchanged, with Meg, Charles Wallace, and Calvin traveling to a distant galaxy in order to save Meg and Charles's father and stop an evil force from taking over the universe. Larson's interpretation of the novel uses the original dialogue but present the narrative in first-person perspective instead of third-person. This makes it even easier for readers to connect with Meg. The graphic novelist also does a good translation of abstract elements to a visual form. While readers familiar with the text version may have different mental images, they will likely appreciate the attempt to illustrate a shimmer like Mrs. Which or effect the tesseract has on Meg. It will also likely make this fairly conceptual work more accessible for readers who cannot quite pick up the ideas in a written form. This book would be useful in a classroom where the original is studied because it could lead to a discussion on adaption. It will also appeal to teens and pre-teens who enjoyed the original or who like reading graphic novels (or both).

adeleine L'Engle's classi

adeleine L'Engle's classic, A Wrinkle In Time, received a graphic novel update from Hope Larson (author of Who is AC? and Mercury), which, with any luck, should reach an entirely new audience in a generation that may have otherwise missed out on this exemplary piece of young adult literature. Larson's adaptation faithfully follows L'Engle's story and dialogue and bravely brings a concrete visual representation to people and places previously only found in L'Engle's mind. While there isn't much to say about this story that hasn't already been said, there is plenty to praise in Larson's illustrations. Her version of Meg, the story's protagonist, looks the part: bespectacled, ordinary and scowling (partly with frustration over her position as a not-so-bright child of brilliant parents with a distinct inability to fit in at school and partly with worry over the mysterious disappearance of her father, a scientist working for the government on a top-secret project). Charles Wallace, her extraordinarily intelligent and misunderstood younger brother, appears even more wide-eyed and tiny than the book suggested, appealing to the reader's instinct to protect him and bringing contrast to the sage and eloquent things that come from his mouth. Other characters, like Mrs. Who, Mrs. Which, Mrs. Whatsit and Aunt Beast, all of whom practically defied Ms. L'Engle to describe, are wonderful depicted (although they must be seen to be believed). Thankfully, Larson's recreation of space and time travel add a new layer to L'Engle's descriptions without taking away any of the mystery and wonder. This book would pair perfectly with nearly any reader that loves graphic novels, science fiction or fantasy, or anyone already familiar with the original novel (or perhaps even someone who is all four of these things).

This book is a labor of i

This book is a labor of intense love, or I miss my guess. It shows. The adaptation is true in spirit, and the art (for me) complements the feel of the original book without distracting from it for its own sake. Meg's internal asides are given front stage when they're important to the philosophical journey, and don't take up more than a frame two. That's a fine rope to tread. My only complaint is that the medium of the graphic novel naturally carries a somewhat faster pace than straight prose, so the whole book seemed to go by a little too quickly. Or I suppose that could be because I read it so avidly. I'll have to reread, I guess.
