A Wrinkle in Time: The Graphic Novel (Comic Excerpt)

Madeleine L'Engle and Hope Larson

A free excerpt from A Wrinkle in Time: The Graphic Novel, adapted by Hope LarsonThe world already knows Meg and Charles Wallace Murry, Calvin O'Keefe, and the three Mrs—Who, Whatsit, and Which—the memorable and wonderful characters who fight off a dark force and save our universe in the Newbery award-winning classic A Wrinkle in Time. But in 50 years of publication, the book has never been illustrated.

Now, Hope Larson (Mercury, I Was There & Just Returned) takes the classic story to a new level with her vividly imagined interpretations of tessering and favorite characters like the Happy Medium and Aunt Beast.

The graphic novel adaptation of A Wrinkle in Time comes out on October 2nd from Farrar, Straus and Giroux

Nicely done. One of my favourite books as a boy - my mum bought the set of three for me one Christmas.

Meg looks just as I thought she did when I first read the book. I even remembered the squeaky step - nice touch.

Will have to pick this up when it comes out.

Agh! I want to read the rest right now! I've read it *years ago* but this is a great reason to read it again.

This is going on my MUST BUY list for next month...I sooooo identified with Meg when I was a child in the 1960s, since I wore glasses and was geeky and not good at sports. I think even now, 40+ years later there's still a bit of Meg Murry in me...
