Annotation: Meg Murry, her brother Charles, and their new friend, Calvin, embark on a fantastic journey to find the time-traveling Mr. Murry, who is trapped in another universe.

Book talk: It was a dark and stormy night, and Mrs. Whatsit has just blown in for a tuna fish salad sandwich. She is new to the neighborhood and the Murry’s – Meg, Charles and their mother – are trying to understand their queer visitor.

As Mrs. Whatsit goes to leave, she turns to Mrs. Murry and speaks, “There is such a thing as a tesseract”.

Mrs. Murry goes white. How could this stranger know about a tesseract?

Meg, Charles, and their friend Calvin, will soon learn that a tesseract is a wrinkle in time, a portal to different dimensions, which they will use to find Meg’s father who has been missing for years…who is caught in A Wrinkle in Time.
