Description

Madeleine L'Engle's ground-breaking science fiction and fantasy classic, soon to be a major motion picture. This movie tie-in audiobook includes an introduction read by director Ava DuVernay, a foreword read by the author, and an afterword read by Madeleine L'Engle's granddaughter Charlotte Jones Voiklis. Meg Murray, her little brother Charles Wallace, and their mother are having a midnight snack on a dark and stormy night when an unearthly stranger appears at their door. He claims to have been blown off course, and goes on to tell them that there is such a thing as a "tesseract," which, if you didn't know, is a wrinkle in time. Meg's father had been experimenting with time-travel when he suddenly disappeared. Will Meg, Charles Wallace, and their friend Calvin outwit the forces of evil as they search through space for their father? In 1962, Madeleine L'Engle debuted her novel A Wrinkle in Time, which would go on to win the 1963 Newbery Medal. Bridging science and fantasy, darkness and light, fear and friendship, the story became a classic of children's literature and is beloved around the world. Now Disney is taking it to the silver screen! Directed by Ava DuVernay and with an all-star cast that includes Oprah Winfrey, Reese Witherspoon, Mindy Kaling, Chris Pine, and newcomer Storm Reid, the major motion picture brings the world of Wrinkle to life for a new generation of fans. A Wrinkle in Time is the first book in The Time Quintet, which consists of A Wrinkle in Time, A Wind in the Door, A Swiftly Tilting Planet, Many Waters, and An Acceptable Time.

Professional reviews

"Hope Davis is wonderful narrating Madeleine L'Engle's children's classic. The 1963 Newbery Award winner is the first in L'Engle's Time Quintet, featuring Murry siblings Meg and Charles Wallace, and their friend, Calvin. Through Davis's appealing performance, listeners share the youngsters' extraordinary adventures through space and time. Davis creates fully realized, completely credible children whose actions determine their own fate, the fate of their loved ones, and the continued existence of the known universe. As the children do battle with the forces of good and evil, and even as the realities of a coming-of-age story unfold, Davis keeps the tender heart of this well-loved sci-fi tale in the foreground. Her narration provides a thrilling plot, convincing characterizations, and a strong message of faith and familial love. S.J.H. (c) AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine"
