It was a dark and stormy night; Meg Murry, her small brother Charles Wallace, and her mother had come down to the kitchen for a midnight snack when they were upset by the arrival of a most disturbing stranger.
"Wild nights are my glory," the unearthly stranger told them. "I just got caught in a downdraft and blown off course. Let me sit down for a moment, and then I'll be on my way. Speaking of ways, by the way, there is such a thing as a tesseract."
A tesseract is a wrinkle in time. A Wrinkle in Time, is a science fiction classic, and the 1963 Newbery Medal winner. It's adventures in space and time of Meg, Charles Wallace, and Calvin O'Keefe, in search of Meg's father, a scientist who disappeared while working on the tesseract problem.
