A Wrinkle in Time: The Graphic Novel Kindle Edition
“Know somebody who hasn't met Mrs Whatsit, Mrs Who or Mrs Which? Larson's colorful panels bring Madeline L'Engle's brilliant time-travel favorite to life in an exciting new way. This is page-turning eye candy of the highest order.” ―James Patterson
“This adaptation is fabulous for presenting a fresh vision to those familiar with the original, but it's so true to the story's soul that even those who've never read it will come away with a genuine understanding of L'Engle's ideas and heart.” ―Booklist, starred review
“The memorable story of Meg Murry, Charles Wallace Murry, and Calvin O'Keefe's adventure across space and time is conveyed with all the intellectual and emotional impact of the original novel.” ―BCCB
“Larson has remained true to the story, preserving the original chapter format and retaining L'Engle's voice. Black-and-white artwork is accented with blue, echoing the original cover color.” ―School Library Journal

The book: I picked it up because it's a classic. The story is simple and has its moments. The world building and the justification for most events in the book is weakly done. It tries to make a social commentary, but again it is half done. The story has potential, however a weak narrative doesn't allow it to happen.
I have not read the original book. Perhaps that better addresses the issues I had with this book.

The story of Meg and Charles along with their friend Calvin is a thrilling and also it is an enchanting read. It very quickly casts it spell and before you know it you are a hundred pages in.
I blame the eyes myself, the illustrator Hope Larson has done an amazing job and each character, most especially Meg has the most expressive eyes, really beautiful to be honest. It is illustrated in blues and blacks to tremendous effect.
Now I am presuming that you may have read the original but like me if you haven't, it is the story of a girl and her younger brother plus their friend who find themselves travelling through time and space to try and find their father. Along the way they meet some unusual characters and see some incredible things but they never lose sight of what they need to find.
A wonderful read which I am planning on re-visiting with a read of the traditional version.
Have you read this and if so what did you think?
Unexpected, but way she goes.
Maybe show a picture of more than the cover of the book, seller.
