Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2 ):
Kids say (4 ):

A longtime critical and popular favorite, adapts well to the strictures of the graphic novel. Adapter/illustrator Hope Larson succeeds in capturing both the tale's cosmic scope and the smaller, intimate moments between characters that put the big questions of good and evil into perspective. Although not a replacement for Madeleine L'Engle's beloved original novel, the comics version of A Wrinkle in Time should appeal to a wide variety of readers, young and old.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
