I always thought of A Wrinkle in Time as a book for older kids, since I remember reading it in junior high. Then I found out my son's preschool teacher was reading it to the older kids in her class during afternoon quiet time, and they were totally digging it. They may not follow all the details, but honestly I was confused about the whole "tesseract" thing myself as a kid and I still loved the book. This adaptation by Larson is full of feeling and magic, and I highly recommend it whether you've read the novel or not.

If you love graphic novels, then this is your book! I love graphic novels, and when I read the original book of a wrinkle in time, i loved it! Then I found it in the library, and I loved it even more! I didn't like that there were not a lot of colours. Please read this book, and if you do, you will not be able to stop reading it. 5 stars for this book! (Ines)

I hadn't read Wrinkle in Time as a kid, but wanted to be familiar with the original story before seeing the movie version. Thought this would be a fun way to accomplish that, and it was! Finished it in one evening, and enjoyed the story and the art.

I think that this will be the last graphic novel I ever read. I was initially excited by the sheer size of this novel - 392 pages. Surely I would get a good opinion from this I thought. Surely this would change my opinion to a more positive light? Sadly I was wrong.

The artwork is too simplistic and the colour palette of black, white and blue simply didn't allow the full wonder of this story to be revealed.

Meg came out looking angry in almost every cell. Charles-Wallace is not convincing and seriously, who cares about the other characters? See, right >there< is where the problem is. The other characters didn't fair so well in this retelling and if you don't care for the characters, why bother reading the book?

A lot of the dialogue remains true to the original but the artwork didn't hold up its end of the bargain to tell the story. Expressions look the same no matter what they are proposed. The great battle between Meg and IT for the heart of Charles-Wallace was told in 11 cells; not much for a great battle at all. In all fairness, the Tesseract was succinctly show in two cells on page 139.

It just didn't do it for me I'm afraid. Graphic novels are nothing more than glorified comic books and I wont be reading any more.

Oh My Goodness! This was amazing. I highly recommend it for anyone who loves the actual book and for anyone who likes graphic novels. The art was great and the words were flowing. A must read!!!!!!

I always found the original novel too confusing to read through so I was excited to see the book in this new format! The illustrator did a fantastic job of portraying the subtleties of emotion that are integral to the characters development however I felt like some of the richness of the plot and characters was lost by only using blue, white and black colouring. I would love to see the sequels in this format.
