Stated 1st edition 1st printing of this time travel fantasy that has become a modern classic. In the stranger than fiction category, A Wrinkle In Time had a difficult time getting published. According to "A Special Message from Madeline L'Engle" on the Random House web site: "After trying forty-odd" publishers (L'Engle later said "twenty-six rejections"), L'Engle's agent returned the manuscript to her. Then at Christmas, L'Engle threw a tea party for her mother. One of the guests happened to know John Farrar of Farrar, Straus & Giroux, and insisted that L'Engle should meet with him. Although the publisher did not at the time publish a line of children's books, Farrar met L'Engle, liked the novel and ultimately published it. A Wrinkle In Time is the winner of the NEWBERY AWARD and the Lewis Carroll Shelf Award. This is an exceptionally nice copy.

The book won a Newbery Medal, Sequoyah Book Award, and Lewis Carroll Shelf Award, and was runner-up for the Hans Christian Andersen Award. It is the first in L'Engle's series of books about the Murry and O'Keefe families.

  "Great read for a kid, adult, or anyone who hasn't lost their sense of mystery and adventure. What if? What if time travel were as easy as L'Engle proposes? I still look for Mrs. Whatsit to point me in the right direction."
