Book Review of A Wrinkle in Time: The Graphic Novel adapted by Hope Larson by Teri Harman, @TeriHarman, #amreading #GraphicNovels

Goodreads Summary
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 Review
A huge round of applause for Hope Larson for this fun, exciting and gorgeous adaptation. The original A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’Engle is a childhood favorite of mine; I’ve read the book two or three times. This graphic novel captures all the magic, emotion and themes of L’Engle’s favorite time travel book in stunning blue, black and white graphics. 

It is so fun to read! I even love the size of the book – just like a regular young adult hardcover, as opposed to the taller standard graphic novel size. 

Whether you’re an old fan or a new potential fan, this is a must-read, must-see book. 

Are you a fan of the original series?
