A Wrinkle In Time

AUTHOR: Madeleine L'Engle
ISBN: 0440498058
Plot Summary: Meg and Charles journey through space with their friend, Calvin, to rescue their father, who disappeared while working on a wrinkle in time.
Complaints: Offensive language, undermines religious beliefs
Challenged at the Polk City, Fla. Elementary School (1985) by a parent who believed that the story promotes witchcraft, crystal balls, and demons. Challenged in the Anniston Ala. schools (1990). The complainant objected to the book's listing the name of Jesus Christ together with the names of great artists, philosophers, scientists, and religious leaders when referring to those who defend earth against evil.
Solonor Says Ban It Because: More fantasy claptrap! Will it take a miracle from God to show you that magic doesn't exist?
