Synopses & Reviews
Meg Murry, 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. She 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?
Now, 40 years after A Wrinkle in Time was first published to become one of the landmark books in children's literature, Square Fish Books is proud to present this Newbery Medal winner completely redesigned — and with bonus material.
"Does a book count as a reissue if it's never been out of print? I don't know. But I do know that I wanted to commemorate this edition, which celebrates 45 years in print for this beloved classic....Here's hoping the tale of gawky Meg Murry...never goes out of print. (Grade: A+)" Entertainment Weekly
"Although this is fantasy, the characters are portrayed realistically and sympathetically....
Meg's father mysteriously disappears after experimenting with the fifth dimension of time travel. Determined to rescue him, Meg and her friends must outwit the forces of evil on a heart-stopping journey through space and time. A commemorative edition with an Introduction by the author. A Newbery Medal winner.
New re-designed editions include:
* New jacket art by Taeeun Yoo.
* An introduction by Anna Quindlen
* Madeleine L'Engle's Newbery Medal acceptance speech and a new interview.
Two countries formerly at war must come together to protect their people in this biting satire on the military industrial complex from the critically acclaimed Philip K. Dick.
In this biting satire, the Cold War may have ended, but the eastern and western governments never told their citizens. Instead they created an elaborate ruse, wherein each side comes up with increasingly outlandish doomsday weapons—weapons that don’t work. But when aliens invade, the top designers of both sides have to come together to make a real doomsday device—if they don’t kill each other first.
With its combination of romance, espionage, and alien invasion, The Zap Gun skewers the military-industrial complex in a way that’s as relevant today as it was at the height of the Cold War.
Join Kate on an epic adventure...
Starring a heroic young woman named Kate Gordon, and featuring T. A. Barrons trademark mastery of language and setting, The Heartlight Saga collects three of Barrons beloved novels into a single volume. The stories follow Kate as she travels to a distant galaxy to save the life of her astronomer grandfather in Heartlight, goes back in time to a lost Native American tribe in The Ancient One, and ultimately down to the very bottom of the sea in The Merlin Effect. Weaving together mystery, mysticism, and magic, and exploring themes of mortality, interconnectedness, and the fragility of the environment, The Heartlight Saga is a testament to the power that each of us has within us to make a difference in our world.
Bold, original . . . this book shines!”—Publishers Weekly
