Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Synopsis:

Ryan and Becky live as human exhibits in an intergalactic zoo...until their dad is poisoned and they must journey across the universe to find the cure.

Synopsis:

Thirteen-year-old Ryan Hawthorn has spent his life on display as a human exhibit in the multi-eyed Pipe Mens intergalactic zoo. When his father is accidentally poisoned, its up to Ryan and his seven-year-old sister, Becky, to scour the universe for the antidote. Along the way, they encounter many strange creatures—from the doglike Hottini to the spindly-legged, hairy Xaxor—and learn that the Pipe Men (or, as Becky calls them, “overgrown drainpipes”) are not kindly overlords, as they had been led to believe. It's not only the humans who are planning to rebel! A wildly imaginative middle grade space-travel adventure.

Synopsis:

When a mysterious parcel addressed simply to “Rosenquist” arrives at her familys rented house, Lin Rosenquist knows the package must be for her. She uses the strange key she finds inside to open the secret door hidden in the cellar—and tumbles headfirst into an amazing new world. Sylver is a snowy land of eternal winter, where all the inhabitants were either once beloved pets or tamed wild animals. The only way for Lin to return home is to find the missing Winter Prince and save Sylver before the clock strikes midnight. But not everyone in the Winter Realm wants him to be found.

With the charm and suspense of The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe and Dragon Rider, this classic-in-the-making is full of exhilarating action and magic. Adventurous, endearing characters and an imaginative setting help make Tone Almhjells debut an electrifying fast-paced ride.

About the Author

Madeleine LEngle (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. LEngle 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). LEngle 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 Madeleines life and the life of her family. Madeleine LEngles 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.

This is one of the all time favorites for me and my students. It's an excellent read-aloud book for many age levels. I highly recommend this book (series).
