Picture it - 1962 - Madeleine L'Engel's A WRINKLE IN TIME debuts.

My granddaughter, Kat, had a similar experience recently.
She loves graphic novels so imagine my delight when the librarian suggested a graphic novel version of A Wrinkle In Time for her.
A WRINKLE IN TIME The Graphic Novel
Adapted and Illustrated By Hope Larson
Hope Larson is an award winning - comic and graphic novel artist-writer.
A quote from Kat: "It's the kind of book where at first you're going - what in the heck is this about?"

I read the graphic novel right after her.
