Publisher Comments:

This special edition of A Wrinkle in Time includes a new essay that explores the science behind the fantasy.Rediscover one of the most beloved children's books of all time: A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L'Engle:Meg Murray, her little brother Charles Wallace, and their mother are having a midnight snack on a dark and stormy night when an unearthly stranger appears at their door. He claims to have been blown off course, and goes on to tell them that there is such a thing as a "tesseract," which, if you didn't know, is a wrinkle in time. Meg's father had been experimenting with time-travel when he suddenly disappeared. Will Meg, Charles Wallace, and their friend Calvin outwit the forces of evil as they search through space for their father?

From the Trade Paperback edition.

Review:

"Hope Davis narrates this engaging new audio production of L'Engle's classic novel. When the troubled and underachieving Meg Murry's physicist father goes missing, Meg — along with her younger brother, Charles, and friend Calvin — warps across the universe in an attempt to find him. The trio is aided by three angels, Mrs Whatsit, Mrs Who, and Mrs Which, who use Dr. Murray's mysterious tesseract project to whisk the children through space and time. Davis delivers pitch-perfect narration that captures the spirit of the author's prose. She also creates distinct voices for the book's many characters, most notably the petulant Meg and enthusiastic Calvin. Listeners are in for a real treat — and longtime L'Engle fans will delight in Davis's outstanding performance, which breathes new life into this acclaimed fantasy title. Ages 10 — up."
