For all of you "Wrinkle in Time fans", you will definitely want to check out this new graphic novel adapted by the book by Madeline L'Engle. And if you couldn't understand the Sci-Fi in the real novel, "A Wrinkle in Time," the new graphic novel is a good thing to put on your reading list. Ironically, this new graphic novel came out on the 50th anniversary of it's publication, illustrated by Hope Larson.

 

It follows the story plot almost exactly as with the book, where Meg Austin, her little brother Charles Wallace, and her friend Calvin are taken to space by strangers named Mrs. Who, Mrs. Whatsit, and Mrs. Which. They are destined to rescue Meg and Charles Wallace's father from the evil planet of Camazotz, where everyone is the same, being controlled by a giant brain called IT.

 

I'd recommend this graphic novel edition for people ages 9 and up, because the concepts are still hard for younger kids. This book is very vibrant in the illustrations drawn by Hope Larson, and she did an amazing job getting it accurate like the "all words" novel. The characters and places in the novel looked pretty much the same way I pictured them, which (for me) is an important quality in making a good graphic novel or movie. This is a huge accomplishment in graphic novel history, for not many John Newbery medal winners have been made into graphic novels. This breathtaking graphic novel drew me in at the first page, and kept me reading and reading until the final illustration. Any Sci-Fi lover who reads this will be begging for a sequel to this epic journey in a graphic novel.
