Deskripsi

Visit the world of A Wrinkle in Time in this new standalone story!

This standalone chapter book gives young readers the perfect entry into the world of Madeleine L’Engle’s A Wrinkle in Time, and lifelong fans of the Time Quintet will recognize characters and settings from A Wind in the Door, the second book in the beloved series. Thoughtful, adventurous, and unique, Intergalactic P.S. 3 is a stunning story of the power of love to span the universe.

Charles Wallace Murry is old enough to start school, but his sister, Meg, and their friend Calvin know he isn’t cut out for school on Earth—Meg worries that he’ll be more misunderstood than ever. Luckily, with the help of the three celestial creatures Mrs Whatsit, Mrs Who, and Mrs Which, there is another place where Charles Wallace can get his education: Intergalactic P.S. 3, a public school in a completely different galaxy. The three children travel through time and space to reach the school, but for them all to make it home safely, Meg must undergo a test that will challenge her inner strength, her perspective, and her ability to protect the ones she loves.

  • A book series that I tried to read in middle school but never made it past the first chapter, returning to these magical books as an adult has been a great experience. I wish I had read them sooner, but unlike in the books, I do not have the ability to travel through space and time. Everything about this series speaks true to me, from the dynamic and loving relationships in the family, to the strong (but flawed) characters that steal the show for their special times. I wasn't a huge fan of the overtly religious moments, but I feel they didn't detract from the story too much. The series starts strong, with A Wrinkle in Time, and stays strong through the end. This is surprising, since many book series' tend to fall off after a few books. I wish L'Engle was still around to keep contributing to this magical world, but alas, my imagine will have to suffice.

  • As a young woman, this book series was insanely powerful to read. L'Engle brought to light ideas and concepts that I had never even dreamed of. A girl as the powerful protagonist of the story, without relying on any men to save her? Women in science, women in control, and women who take assertive control of their situations and solve their own problems? Magnificient! I remember when I first read A Wrinkle in Time and how much it changed me, and it wasn't until later that I read the rest of the series as well. Needless to say, they are all phenomenal. We need more books like this, with strong female characters who don't need help, who can solve their own problems, and who love science and math!
