Overview

Fifty years ago, Madeleine L'Engle introduced the world to A Wrinkle in Time and the wonderful and unforgettable characters Meg and Charles Wallace Murry, and their friend Calvin O'Keefe.

Read the iconic novels that continue to inspire millions of fans around the world.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

A Wrinkle in Time is one of my favorite books of all time. I've read it so often, I know it by heart. Meg Murry was my hero growing up. I wanted glasses and braces and my parents to stick me in an attic bedroom. And I so wanted to save Charles Wallace from IT.” —Meg Cabot on A Wrinkle in Time

“A book that every young person should read, a book that provides a road map for seeking knowledge and compassion even at the worst of times, a book to make the world a better place.” —Cory Doctorow on A Wrinkle in Time

“A suspenseful, life-and-death drama that is of believable cosmic significance. Complex and rich in mystical religious insights, this is breathtaking entertainment.” —School Library Journal, starred review on A Wind in the Door

“Madeleine L'Engle mixes classical theology, contemporary family life, and futuristic science fiction to make a completely convincing tale that should put under its spell both readers familiar with the Murrys and those meeting them for the first time.” —The New York Times Book Review on A Wind in the Door

“Charles Wallace, now fifteen, Meg, and the Murrys reappear in an intricately woven fantasy in which the boy time-spins through a tangle of history to find and mend the broken link that threatens to disturb the harmony of today. Theme is L'Engle's greatest forte, and once again she proves this with a compelling plot, rich in style that vibrates with provocative thoughts on universal love, individual caring, and the need for the joy in living.” —Booklist, starred review on A Swiftly Tilting Planet

As a retired  children's librarian, it saddens me to see such ridiculous reviews (I.e. Free iPad and borrow  first as its dark)  just encourage people to read overviews or professional reviews to get an idea  if the book is right for your child's age. This set of books are wonderful  even so many years after their publication. She was  a mother and author so her stories aim children to love  family and to be brave in tough times. "Dark stories" (read at the appropriate  age and child's temperament) can help kids know That there are dragons, but love can conquer them.

I remember reading this book in the summer between fifth and sixth grade. I wasn't much of a reader of this kind of book but I gave it a try. It was a difficult read because the science was new to me, but the story kept me going. What I found so captivating was the maturity of the characters. They took on a role only an adult could and with the bravery beyond anything I could do, they marched forth. These characters were never sure they would succeed but they continued on. They did so out of love and commitment to family.

One of the first science fiction books I ever read, I felt right at home with the responsibilities (and anxieties) of an older sister for a very talented but different younger brother. I loved this series!

This is my all time favorite book. I'm 41 now and I read this book in 4th grade and too many times to count over the years. I am forever grateful for Madeline, Meg, and her story.. This book had a huge part in shaping me into the woman I am today. As an adult I have often thought back to things I have read in the book and understood them even better over time. I love a "Happy Medium" For every STEM and Nerdy girl out there, this is the book for you. Meg will become your personal hero. Because you will see yourself in her and grow from her experience..
