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 fifty years of publication, the book has never been illustrated.
Now, Hope Larson takes the classic story to a new level with her vividly imagined interpretations of tessering and favourite characters like the Happy Medium and Aunt Beast. Perfect for old fans and winning over new ones, this graphic novel adaptation is a must-read.
Ok I have never read the original non illustrated version of this classic tale but in the last year I have started taking an interest in graphic novels and this seemed like a good choice. I have always wanted to read it and it was full of cool illustrations.
The story of Meg and Charles along with their friend Calvin is a thrilling and also it is an enchanting read. It very quickly casts it spell and before you know it you are a hundred pages in.
I blame the eyes myself, the illustrator Hope Larson has done an amazing job and each character, most especially Meg has the most expressive eyes, really beautiful to be honest. It is illustrated in blues and blacks to tremendous effect.
Now I am presuming that you may have read the original but like me if you haven't, it is the story of a girl and her younger brother plus their friend who find themselves travelling through time and space to try and find their father. Along the way they meet some unusual characters and see some incredible things but they never lose sight of what they need to find.
A wonderful read which I am planning on re-visiting with a read of the traditional version.
Have you read this and if so what did you think?
