  • Rediscover an American classic with this special deluxe edition of the Newbery Award–winning children's series—starring the iconic time traveling heroine, Meg Murry
  • This Library of America volume presents Madeleine L'Engle's iconic classic A Wrinkle in Time, one of the most beloved and influential novels for young readers ever written, in a newly-prepared authoritative text and, as a special feature, it includes never-before-seen deleted passages from the novel in an appendix. L'Engle's unforgettable heroine, Meg Murry, must confront her fears and self-doubt to rescue her scientist father, who has been experimenting with mysterious tesseracts capable of bending the very fabric of space and time. Helping her are her little brother Charles Wallace and her friend Calvin O'Keefe, and a trio of strange supernatural visitors called Mrs. Whatsit, Mrs. Who, and Mrs. Which. But A Wrinkle in Time was only the beginning of the adventure. Seven other Kairos ("cosmic time") novels followed, collected for the first time in a deluxe two volume collector's boxed set.

In A Wind in the Door, Meg and Calvin descend into the microverse to save Charles Wallace from the Echthroi, evil beings who are trying to unname existence. When a madman threatens nuclear war in A Swiftly Tilting Planet, Charles Wallace must save the future by traveling into the past. And in Many Waters, Sandy and Dennys, Meg's twin brothers, are accidentally transported back to the time of Noah's ark.

This Library of America volume presents Madeleine L'Engle's iconic classic A Wrinkle in Time, one of the most beloved and influential novels for young readers ever written, in a newly-prepared authoritative text and, as a special feature, it includes never-before-seen deleted passages from the novel in an appendix.

Helping her are her little brother Charles Wallace and her friend Calvin O'Keefe, and a trio of strange supernatural visitors called Mrs. Whatsit, Mrs. Who, and Mrs. Which. But A Wrinkle in Time was only the beginning of the adventure. Seven other Kairos ("cosmic time") novels followed, collected for the first time in a deluxe two volume collector's boxed set.

This first volume gathers Wrinkle with three books that chronicle the continuing adventures of Meg and her siblings. In A Wind in the Door, Meg and Calvin descend into the microverse to save Charles Wallace from the Echthroi, evil beings who are trying to unname existence. When a madman threatens nuclear war in A Swiftly Tilting Planet, Charles Wallace must save the future by traveling into the past. And in Many Waters, Sandy and Dennys, Meg's twin brothers, are accidentally transported back to the time of Noah's ark.
The ebook is currently on sale for $2.99 at Amazon [amazon.com] and Google Play Books [google.com], and probably also B&N, Nook and iBooks.

These are great books. Their genre is properly science-fantasy. The science is hard science and the fantasy is the fantastic pulled from western mysticism. It is written at a grade-school appropriate level -- I'd say 5th and up on average. The heroine Meg is a fantastic protagonist and her character arch is interesting for both boys and girls.

The books do deal with some horror elements and elements that need a degree of emotional maturity. They are an easier read than, say The Hobbit but one can read The Hobbit to kids earlier. The main antagonist in AWIT is described in the book as "the happiest sadist" and for a children's book, fully lives up to that description.

Opera movie = garbage
2003 Movie = not great, divergent from the book, gets some things right somethings wrong. Reminded me of an episode of Doctor Who from the same time period.

I love these books.
You're the first non-teacher I've ever heard from that liked this book. I still remember reading it in 5th grade and thinking it was the stupidest book I've ever read. I'm a science fiction fan but never liked fantasy. My son had to read this and I never said a word about it until he was done, and he hated it as well.

I watched the movie for the heck of it not expecting it much and ... it wasn't the worst movie ever.

Interesting take. I read it as a kid and I felt like everyone loved it, but I wasn't into it. I can't say I hated it, but I wasn't really into it. Upon reading your comment, my sense that "everyone" was into it may have been due to an environment of an adult marketing machine wanting me to love it. I do think my sister liked the books, though.

I read and enjoyed the first three books with my daughter. Many Waters got pretty freaky and we changed series after that, but I'd support the others.

The first one is a Newberry Award winner and if you've ever read any of these books, you probably realize they're not always bubble gum and puppies, so bear in mind when you contemplate any one person's opinion.
