Book Review: A Wrinkle in Time: The Graphic Novel by Hope Larson


All the magic, and wonder of Madeleine L’Engle’s classic novel A Wrinkle in Time gets a majestic retelling in the form of Hope Larson’s graphic novel adaptation.

Wrinkle in Time graphic novelThe 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.

Larson beautifully brings to life the story of Meg, Charles Wallace, and all the rest of the beloved characters from A Wrinkle in Time through her stunning illustrations and selective use of narrative and dialogue from L’Engle’s original novel.

Larson’s graphic novel adaptation is the perfect introduction to A Wrinkle in Time for readers unfamiliar with this classic novel, but will also be cherished for long-time fans of the series.

Reading the graphic novel adaptation reminded me exactly why I fell in love with A Wrinkle in Time when I first read it in middle school — and why I’ve cherished it ever since. Larson remains true to L’Engle’s beloved classic — honoring and paying tribute to this beloved book in a stunning, artistic fashion.

Larson’s A Wrinkle in Time graphic novel adaptation is now available.
