Reviews

"A Wrinkle in Time is one of my favorite books of all time. I've read it so often, I know it by heart. Meg Murry was my hero growing up. I wanted glasses and braces and my parents to stick me in an attic bedroom. And I so wanted to save Charles Wallace from IT." --Meg Cabot on A Wrinkle in Time

"A book that every young person should read, a book that provides a road map for seeking knowledge and compassion even at the worst of times, a book to make the world a better place." --Cory Doctorow on A Wrinkle in Time

"A suspenseful, life-and-death drama that is of believable cosmic significance. Complex and rich in mystical religious insights, this is breathtaking entertainment." --School Library Journal, starred review on A Wind in the Door

"Madeleine L'Engle mixes classical theology, contemporary family life, and futuristic science fiction to make a completely convincing tale that should put under its spell both readers familiar with the Murrys and those meeting them for the first time." --The New York Times Book Review on A Wind in the Door

"An intricately woven fantasy ... Theme is L'Engle's greatest forte, and once again she proves this with a compelling plot, rich in style that vibrates with provocative thoughts on universal love, individual caring, and the need for the joy in living." --Booklist, starred review on A Swiftly Tilting Planet

"This will be enjoyed for its suspense and humor as well as its other levels of meaning." --Kirkus Reviews on Many Waters

"L'Engle blends speculative fiction with biblical theology to create another provocative spellbinding tale." --Philadelphia Inquirer on Many Waters

"L'Engle has again achieved the award-winning style of A Wrinkle in Time ... Highly recommended." --VOYA on An Acceptable Time
