Today, I am excited to be taking part in the 50 Years, 50 Days, 50 Blogs Tour in celebration of the 50th anniversary of A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’Engle.
When I was asked to create an alternate cover for A Wrinkle in Time, it seemed like a daunting task. Such a well-known and popular book, I don’t know if there’s any way to do it justice, mostly because I love the original cover from when it was published 50 years ago so much. For my cover, I chose to showcase a tesseract (a wrinkle in time) in which the characters are able to travel through space and time. I’m also fairly sure a Newbury award shouldn’t be sliced into, but you can’t control those tesseracts!
