From the Trade Paperback edition.
"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."
