Summary :

It is a dark and stormy night. Meg Murry, her small brother Charles Wallace, and her mother are in the kitchen for a midnight snack when a most disturbing visitor arrives.

"Wild nights are my glory," the unearthly stranger tells them. "I just got caught in a downdrift and blown off course. Let me sit down for a moment, and then I'll be on my way. Speaking of ways, by the way, there is such a thing as a tesseract."

Meg's father had been experimenting with this fifth dimension of time when he mysteriously disappeared. Now the time has come for Meg, her friend Calvin, and Charles Wallace to rescue him. But can they outwit and overpower the forces of evil they will encounter on their heart-stopping journey through space?

  • "It has the general appearance of being science fiction, but it is not...There is mystery, mysticism, a feeling of indefinable, brooding horror...The pervading theme is love...One feels that this book quests desperately for something it never touches. It is original, different, exciting." Saturday Review
