A Wrinkle In Time by Madeleine L’Engle


A Wrinkle in Time (Puffin Modern Classics)

This bundle of words is about a group of children, two of which have to rescue their father from the fifth hemisphere( the fifth hemisphere is up.) There is a monster which is named It. YES, its name is It! It hypnotises you into doing exactly the same thing as everyone else, in unison. This is quite an original book, with the normal worries about school, and the ones about monsters, all colliding and crashing into each other. The characters, Mrs Who, Mrs Whatsit and Mrs Which, especially Mrs Whatsit are all exeedingly funny and unusual. I think Charles Wallace, the youngest of the three children is my favourite. He is so young but understanding. I think the author could have added a bit more description of fear in. I LOVED how the characters were so vivid and unusual

    Excellent review! I loved this book when I was a child and am now reading it with my son for our mother/son book group. I will let you know what the boys think in another comment. I hope they like it as much as we do 🙂
