I loved this book when I first read it as a young adult. I think it may have been the book that solidified my deep appreciation for fantasy novels. I didn't discover until many years later that it's an allegory, and a very good one. The children of a mother who is a scientist and a father has been missing for years meet the old ladies who live next door - Mrs. Whatsit, Mrs. Who, and Mrs. Which. They tell the children their father is in trouble and needs their help to get home from somewhere out in the universe. So many unusual and amazing things happen. This is an exciting and totally absorbing story.

A good little children's story, I am sure I would have loved it if I had read it when I was younger!

My favourite book of all time. Mindless conformity as the epitome of evil - yes. Just...yes.

L'engle believes story communicates the divine. And it is clear in her fiction.
