Book Review: A Wrinkle in Time: the Graphic Novel by Madeleine L'Engle and Hope Larson

A Wrinkle in Time: The Graphic Novel
Author: Madeleine L'Engle and Hope Larson
Publication: Farrar, Straus and Giroux (BYR) (October 2, 2012)

Description: The 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 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. Perfect for old fans and winning over new ones, this graphic novel adaptation is a must-read.

My Thoughts: This is a graphic novel version of Madeleine L'Engle's A Wrinkle in Time that was well done. It kept the most important parts of the plot and added nicely done illustrations. The palette of blue, black and white matched the mood of the story very well.

While it is missing the rich detail of the novel, this provides a good introduction for new readers of the book and a nice refresher for those of us very familiar with the original.
