A Wrinkle In Time
A Wrinkle In Time was written by American author Madeleine L'Engle and published by
Ariel Books on January 1st, 1962.
A Wrinkle In Time is a 228 page novel. It is the first novel in the Time Quintet, a five-book series of young adult novels written by Madeleine L'Engle. The four other books in the series are A Wind in the Door, A Swiftly Tilting Planet, Many Waters, and An Acceptable Time. The back cover synopsis of the novel reads as follows:
"It was a dark and stormy night; Meg Murry, her small brother Charles Wallace, and their mother had to come down to the kitchen for a midnight snack when they were upset by the arrival of a most disturbing stranger.
'Wild nights are my glory,' the unearthly stranger told them. 'I just got caught in a downdraft and blown off course. Let me sit down for a moment, and then I'll be on my way. Speaking of way, by the way, there is such a thing as a tesseract."
A tesseract (in case you didn't know) is a wrinkle in time. To tell more would spoil your enjoyment of Madeleine L'Engle's unusual book."
A Wrinkle In Time was listed on one of the "Teachers' Top 100 Books for Children" on a 2007 online poll by the National Education Association. It was also listed as one of the "Top 100 Chapter Books" of all time by School Library Journal.
