Funny thing happened the other day. My 9 year old son watched the “A Wrinkle In Time” trailer and ran upstairs to announce that he wanted to see the movie, but he needed to read the book first. I am sure you can imagine my excitement (I am a high school librarian after all). Here’s the thing…. traditionally, boys aren’t big readers, especially at a young age. While my son is no exception, he is a reader of more graphic novels and books about building cars and robots.
Without hesitation, I got online and placed a hold on the Disney A Wrinkle In Time B&N Exclusive Movie Tie-In Edition at Barnes and Noble (by the way, I love this service, because it cuts down the time it would have taken me to search for the book on my own). I picked the book up, got it home and the first thing he does is grab the book and skim a few of the pages to get an idea of the structure of the book. I am telling you he made me so proud. I also believe that my daughter raving about the fact that she has read the book multiple times is also a reason he wants to read it. Whatever the reason, I jumped at the chance to get him his very own copy.
Disney’s A Wrinkle In Time is based on the series of books by the author Madeleine L’Engle. A Wrinkle In Time is a Newbery Medal-winning book that has been a favorite of many. That is why we are so ready to see the movie.
Disney bringing this book to life is going to be epic and with the beautiful cast (Oprah Winfrey – Mrs. Which, Reese Witherspoon – Mrs. WhatsIt, Mindy Kaling – Mrs. Who, and Storm Reid – Meg Murry) and it’s phenomenal director (Ava DuVernay) it is going to be an immediate classic.
Check out the trailer:
My entire family is eager to see this film especially since my son is the last one in the family to read it. How about you? Have you read the book? Will you be in attendance opening weekend? We will!
