I got this book for my eight year old daughter for Christmas. She may one day be a reader, but not quite yet. However, she sped through this book in just a few days! She loved it! She read for a few hours at a time (totally amazing) and asked to read instead of going out to play. I highly recommend this for kids who are just starting to enjoy reading.

How many times have you read A Wrinkle in Time? If you're like me, it's too many to count, so when I heard the graphic novel was being published I was excited to see it. We all have pictures in our mind of how the characters and scenery look, and these images won't replace those. They will confirm and complement all good feelings you have about the original!

Product details 400 pages Farrar Straus Giroux - English 9780374386153 Reviews:
"Publishers Weekly Review" by , "L'Engle's Newbery Medal-winning 1962 novel of good, evil, and quantum physics gets a stellar (no pun intended) graphic novel treatment from Eisner-winner Larson (Mercury). Larson's loose, modern drawing style focuses on the characters, largely omitting backgrounds and leaving readers room to add their own imagination. Meg Murry looks every bit as gawky and uncomfortable in her own skin as she feels, and Larson also plays up Charles Wallace's specialness and strangeness, giving him large, haunted eyes that seem to see things his other family members cannot. The b&w art, highlighted with Wedgwood blue, effectively accents the children's sense of alienation, but limits some critical storytelling elements (like a villain's red eyes) after Meg, Charles Wallace, and their neighbor Calvin are whisked across time and space on a mission to rescue Dr. Murry from an evil force that threatens the universe. While fans may miss L'Engle's detailed and evocative prose, her original dialogue, combined with Larson's deft interpretation, will remind them of their first reading, while simultaneously bringing a seminal classic to a new generation. Ages 10 – up. Agent: Edward Necarsulmer IV, McIntosh & Otis. (Oct.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
"Review" by , "Know somebody who hasn't met Mrs Whatsit, Mrs Who or Mrs Which? Larson's colorful panels bring Madeline L'Engle's brilliant time-travel favorite to life in an exciting new way. This is page-turning eye candy of the highest order."
"Review" by , "This adaptation is fabulous for presenting a fresh vision to those familiar with the original, but it's so true to the story's soul that even those who've never read it will come away with a genuine understanding of L'Engle's ideas and heart."
"Review" by , "The memorable story of Meg Murry, Charles Wallace Murry, and Calvin O'Keefe's adventure across space and time is conveyed with all the intellectual and emotional impact of the original novel."
"Review" by , "Larson has remained true to the story, preserving the original chapter format and retaining L'Engle's voice. Black-and-white artwork is accented with blue, echoing the original cover color."
"Review" by , "A faithfully adapted graphic novel of the beloved 1962 classic, just in time to celebrate its 50th anniversary."
"Review" by , "L'Engle's Newbery Medal-winning 1962 novel of good, evil, and quantum physics gets a stellar (no pun intended) graphic novel treatment from Eisner-winner Larson."
"Synopsis" by ,

For Amy Sturgess, life in the big city comes with even bigger problems. Her marketing career is being derailed by a conniving coworker stealing her accounts. Her family crises range from her down-and-out brother running afoul of the law to her mothers growing affections for the house cats. And Amys love life just flatlined thanks to an unexpected reunion with the one that got away—whos now engaged.

When Xanax and therapy fail to relieve her stress, Amy does what any young woman in her position would do: She uses her superstrength, speed, flight, and ability to generate 750 volts from her hands to fight crime as the mysterious masked vigilante Starling. But while Starling is hailed as a superhero, will Amy remain a super-zero?
