Praise for Hope Larson’s adaptation of A Wrinkle in Time:

“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

“Larson has miraculously preserved the power of the original’s social and religious themes, as well as its
compelling emotional core, while staying true to her distinctive voice and aesthetic.”

“Adaptations can be difficult to execute with style and grace; Larson manages to do both and still add her own flair. Larson’s admiration and respect for the original text shines through; this is an adaptation done right.”

“While fans may miss L’Engle’s detailed and evocative prose, her original dialogue, combined with Larson’s deft interpretation, will remind them of their first reading, while simultaneously bringing a seminal classic to a new generation.”
-Publisher’s Weekly

“I’ll be giving this to everyone I know.”
-The Atlantic Wire

“Stylish, imaginative, absolutely beautiful, and most impressively, fresh.”
-BadAss Digest

“This graphic novel is no synopsis, folks – it’s A Wrinkle in Time. […] Kids who have read the original story will likely be interested in how the graphic novel looks, and those who have never read L’Engle’s classic may see this as a good opportunity to give it a shot. Win-win, I say.”
-100 Scope Notes

“L’Engle’s charm and gift was in her ability to marry the abstract with the numinous–to infuse stories about math and physics with so much heart, heartbreak, bravery, sorrow and joy that they changed everyone who read them. Larson does a brilliant job of capturing this crucial element of L’Engle’s style.”
-Cory Doctorow, boingboing
