Since the movie is being released on March 9th, I thought that it would only be fair to recommend A Wrinkle in Time by Madeline L’Engle for this Throwback Thursday!
Meg and Charles Wallace set out with their friend Calvin in a search for their father. His top secret job as a physicist for the government has taken him away and the children search through time and space to find him.
First published in 1962, this book is an excellent example of classic science fiction. A Wrinkle in Time was awarded the Newbery Medal in 1963, and has gone on to inspire multiple movies. You can check out the book in the Juvenile Fiction section at J LENGLE, and you can check out the trailer for the new movie below.
Science-loving Delia Bean is expecting to have a pretty boring summer vacation looking after her little brother. But when her Uncle Lyndon offers her an internship in his Earth Time Museum, everything begins to look a lot better!
I’ll admit that I love just about anything that has to do with time travel and to have that combined with a museum that covers the entire history of Earth really caught my attention. This is a fast paced graphic novel – the action picks up quickly as Delia begins to time-travel with other prospective interns as they compete to be chosen for the coveted internship at the Earth Time Museum. The art work is really loose and fluid which just adds to the fast pace of the graphic novel. I also found myself quickly growing attached to the large cast of teens who were competing and cheering them on as they finally began to work together. I recommend this to anyone who likes graphic novels and science fiction – this was a fun read.
