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....[T]his imaginative book will be read for a long time into the future." Children's Literature
