Have you ever met someone that you knew right away you could trust? That’s how Meg, Charles Wallace and Calvin felt about Mrs. Whatsit, Mrs. Who, and Mrs. Which. That’s why they agreed to go on a dangerous adventure with them to find Meg and Charles Wallace’s father, Mr. Murry.  Mr. Murry is a physicist. He went away for work and has not come back. His family has not heard from him and does not know where he is.  That’s where Mrs. Whatsit, Mrs. Who, and Mrs. Which come in. They know something. They take the kids on a trip through time to another planet, Camazotz, where IT, the Dark Shadow that is trying to take over the universe, is holding Mr. Murry prisoner.  Will Meg, Charles Wallace and Calvin be able to save Mr. Murry? Will they be able to resist the powers of IT? Will they make it back to Earth? Read to find out. And there’s more! If you love this book – you’re in luck – the story doesn’t end here.
