If you’re one of those people who know that there is such a thing as a tesseract, then you’re in for a treat: Above is cartoonist Hope Larson’s take on Meg Murry, one of the young heroes of Madeleine L’Engle’s beloved science-fiction classic A Wrinkle in Time. Larson’s adaptation of the book for Farrar, Strauss and Giroux is slated to debut in Fall 2012, clocking in at a whopping 392 pages. Visit Larson’s blog for more on the book and this piece, from the bruise on Meg’s face to the reason you won’t be seeing her in this outfit in the book itself.



God I can’t wait for this to come out! This isn’t enough to hold me over… I need more!!!

it looks sort of…boring. i mean it’s such an imaginative book and this style looks so safe and plain. i guess that’s what the publisher was going for. also she looks kind of like Kristen Schaal here…

i guess i’ve been spoiled by the images at ‘picture book report’ by Jeremy Sorese, they’re pretty wild.

I agree with Kate (see above) – no offense to Hope, but this is pretty disappointing. I would expect something much more visually striking for such a unique and imaginative story. Hopefully we’ll be proven wrong as more artwork is released! :)
