The graphic novel for kids is a John Newbery Medal awardee and is a 5-part book series. The theme of the book is not just for kids. It revolves around Science, time travel, the universe, literature, languages, family, angels, religion and love.
The story is about the adventures of the Murry kids and Calvin O’Keefe. The elder Murry’s are both scientist and they have 4 odd or special children. The story revolves around the adventure of looking for Mr. Murry, who has been away on a Government mission for too long. The entire town thinks he left his family for good.
His two children, Meg and Charles Wallace, befriended three thieves/witches who know where their Father is. Charles Wallace, who has advance intelligence and is able to see through people, believed them. He persuaded his sister and their friend, Calvin O’Keefe, to go on this mission to find their Father.
On their journey, they met various characters that reminds me so much of Mother Earth, Angels, Evil/Satan. All throughout the story you will read about references of various literary works, the galaxy and the universe explained, the good and evil doings of Human beings on Earth and it’s effects, Religion as the characters talk about Jesus and mentioning Bible verses. The children were sent into a world to which they can only travel and where their Father is.
It’s definitely a must read! The kind of books that reminded me of the lessons taught to me as a kid. It’s so easy to forget the basic lessons of right and wrong.
There’s a movie adaptation of this book coming soon. It’s a movie to be directed by Frozen director.
