Madeline L'Engle's children's book has been popular for the last thirty-five years as a simple fable, a story of good defeating evil, and a celebration of intellect conquering all. Meg, Charles Wallace, and Calvin survive their adventures through strength of will and reasoning and faith in one another--a unique concept in the world of children's literature.

Beneath this simple story lie many layers. L'Engle wove spiritual, mathematical, and scientific concepts into her story. This originality and daring are why the book's popularity persists. We have examined this book's spiritual and mathematical layers, uncovering the depth of L'Engle's message. We have also made propositions and suggestions for a movie adaptation of this book, since we think that this medium is just one other way to percieve the concepts presented in A Wrinkle in Time.
