Summary from Goodreads:
The 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.
I’m not going to rehash my thoughts on the actual story since I’ve reviewed it before.
I have to say that I really enjoyed this as a graphic novel. I’ve read this story several times over the years. I enjoy the story every time I read it but it’s definitely weird. I don’t think I’ve ever fully “got” it because of how odd it was. I could never quite picture what was happening or I couldn’t picture the concepts they were talking about. The illustrations in this book helped greatly. It made things so much clearer for me. I might end up reading more of the series if they come out with them in graphic novels!
The bottom line? A great adaptation.
