Rediscover one of the most beloved children's books of all time: A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L'Engle:
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?

The narration is one of the best I've heard. I read the book when I was a child and had to listen when I saw it available. I have also seen the movie. This is what the movie should have been. Wonderful!
Yes. Its a great way to show children the affects of evil in the world and the power of good. Great religious connections can be made.
A Wrinkle In Time is an amazing story narrated by Hope Davis. This is a new start to a new favorite series!
Having loved this story since childhood, I was very excited to share it with my daughter...the only reason I gave the performance a four star was I felt the reader struggled with certain voices. But still, I would highly recommend this book for its content and the rest of the reading, which was good.
Mysterious, adventure, timeless
Meg because she is stubborn and inquisitive and determined.
She was very expressive and got into the role of each character.
Yes, when her father returned after being gone a long time.
Really good fiction read. Not for younger children who might scare easily. Highly recommend for Sci-fi enthusiasts.
