Author Info
Madeleine L'Engle
Best known for her classic children's book, A WRINKLE IN TIME, winner of the 1963 Newbery Medal, Madeleine L'Engle also wrote dozens of books for adults. Her writing was deeply influenced by her childhood, during which she suffered through a series of bad school experiences. L'Engle attended Smith College and married Hugh Franklin, an actor, with whom she had three children. Many of her books are a combination of science fiction, fantasy, and spirituality. Interestingly, although her books often contain a strong Christian element, they have sometimes been challenged for what some believe to be an "anti-Christian message." In 1997 she was honored with the World Fantasy Award for lifetime achievement, and in 2004 was a recipient of the National Humanities Medal. She died at the age of 88.
From the Publisher
Editors Note An extremely intelligent six-year-old boy begins an adventure when he discovers dragons in the garden.
Annotation The second book in Madeleine L'Engle's classic fantasy trilogy follows the adventures of Meg Murray and her unusual younger brother Charles Wallace as they encounter something completely unexpected. When six-year-old Charles becomes convinced that there are dragons in the family vegetable garden, his investigation uncovers not dragons but a mysterious alien. Soon he, Meg, Calvin, and Mr. Jenkins (the unfriendly school principal) are involved in an intergalactic adventure that is singularly important to Charles. A WRINKLE IN TIME and A SWIFTLY TILTING PLANET are part of this wonderful trilogy.
