Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The companion to the 1963 Newbery Medal winner A Wrinkle in Time.

Meg Murry can't help but be worried when her six-year-old brother, Charles Wallace, announces there are dragons in the vegetable garden. He's so bright and so different from other kids, he's getting bullied at school, and he is also strangely, seriously ill.

But Charles Wallace is right about the dragons — actually a friendly entity who has come to help Charles Wallace fight his sickness. Meg and her friend Calvin O'Keefe join the dragon on a terrifying, wonderful journey into galactic space — where they must battle the forces of evil to save Charles Wallace and themselves.

Review:

"The chief characters of...A Wrinkle in Time return in a complex sci-fi/fantasy adventure....Meg and Calvin O'Keefe are enlisted again to fight evil, this time in the shape of the Echthroi, which are spreading through the universe." School Library Journal
