Rediscover one of the most beloved children's books of all time: A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L'Engle:

Meg Murray, 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. He 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?

      Not very good , it was very confusing. I couldn't quite understand it because the book didn't make any sense.

              This book is so heartwarming! It is filled with imaginary people and planets. I liked this book so much, I bought it myself! My favorite character is Charles. He is so caring and delicate! You should read this book!

                    This book is about a girl named Meg, her brother Charles Wallace, and their friend Calvin in their journey through space to find her long lost father. Through out they encounter darkness, light, friendship, and a tad bit of romance. A great book to be reading. It's awesome. I love it.

                      This book is about a girl named Meg who was in search of her lost father. She was able to catch her father, but her little brother, Charles Wallace, got caught by the IT. The IT is a big brain that sucks people minds up and controls them. Meg figured out love was the only thing that she had to protect herself, and free Charles. I really enjoyed reading this time-travel space book. I recommend this great chapter book!!!!
