Reviews Intergalactic P.S. 3

  • RuthAnn
    I read Intergalactic P.S. 3 the day I got it, and I finished it in one go, which means I’ve been siting on these thoughts for 10 days. So, I’m cringing here, because I really did not like it. Clicking that 1 star was painful for me. The cover says that this is “a Wrinkle in Time story,” and yes, it involves Meg, Charles Wallace, and Calvin. However, in my opinion, the story feels more like an early draft of A Wind in the Door. In general,...

    I'm not really sure who this is for? It seems like it would be confusing to a child who was too young to read the original Wrinkle in Time books. I see it was originally published as a kind of bonus short story and that seems like...where it should remain tbh. Or if they really wanted to publish this as its own thing maybe have Hope Larson adapt it into a full graphic novel instead of the illustrated...long...picture book...thing that it currentl...

    I LOVE the Time Quintet by Madeleine L'Engle. But this really does just feel like an early draft of an early chapter for the 2nd book, A Wind in the Door. I still liked it, simply because of how much I love the world she created. But I can understand why some people are giving it only one or two stars.
  • Kyle
    Oof. What to think of this bizarre hybrid entry in the world of L'Engle's Time Quintet?I was excited to learn of this previously unpublished (at least in book form) work of Madeleine L'Engle's. I was hoping for one last fun adventure with Meg, Charles Wallace, and Calvin. Unfortunately, this was not to be.Despite its marketing it's not really a new story - the bulk of the book is almost a direct extract from "A Wind in the Door". There is some ne...

    Intergalactic P.S. 3 is an introduction to A Wrinkle In Time but for younger readers. It is set up as a quick, easy-to-read chapter book. That being said, I stumbled through the first chapter not sure if any young reader would be able to hang on through it. My 7-year-old quickly lost interest and wanted to move on to another book. BUT, as soon as we go through the first chapter, we couldn't put it down. We had to know the fate of Charles Wallace,...

    Charles Wallace is so precocious that he must go to an intergalactic school where he won't get jumped for being himself. Meg and Calvin go with him. Prospective students are paired up with other prospective students from other planets and are tested before admission. Neg and her partner must reveal which of several teachers is actually Meg's real teacher. The themes of love, as well as being yourself, are strong.I had not read many of Madeleine L...

    I can't quite sort out what to think of this. This book will likely only be appreciated by fans of L'engles "A Wrinkle in Time" or "A Wind in the Door". Originally published in 1970 for a special program (Children's Book Council Book Week in 1970) , its a short story that is the framework for what later became a Wind in the Door. Essentially, one of the most pivotal scenes at it's core and essence - that with the 3 Mr. Jenkins for the inquiring m...

    I have read every Madeleine L'Engle novel and while I like some much better than others I enjoy all of them at least in part. This is not one of my favorite books by her but it is still quite good. Her writing style always engages me and I find at least one character in every one of her books that I can relate to in some way.
  • Denice Hein
    After the movie, this continuation of Meg, Charles Wallace and Calvin's adventures is wonderful! I was super excited to see that a series was written and suprised to find out this one isn't the first one after Wrinkle in Time! It's a fabulous stand alone that will stir readers' imagination and desire for more. 2-5th graders will keep this one off the shelf.
  • Natalie Waddell-Rutter
    It's a perfectly fine story, but it felt really familiar. I think L'Engle used the idea of Naming Mr. Jenkins and the cherubim in another of the Time Quartet books. For a kid just starting to read the series, it would be quite enjoyable. It's short, too, so easy to finish.Sadly, I also wasn't a bit fan of the illustrations, mainly because they pinned down exactly what the Mrs. Ws looked like, which wasn't what I'd pictured in my head. It wasn't t...
  • Mighty Cookie
    Meh. It's ok I guess. I didn't really like it. (1) because it's too short. They only show Meg's side of the story. (2) What happens after? Idk if it's just me, but it sorta seems . . . Kinda incomplete . . .
  • Ellen Zarate
    This book takes place after A Wrinkle in Time but is on an easier reading level. I think it will make young readers want to pick up the classic, but the chronology isn't ideal.
  • Suzy Gaeta
    I liked this book, but thought it should have been the introductory chapters to a much longer book. It was over almost as soon as it began.
  • Lori Gibbany
    Interesting addition to the wrinkle in time books. Little disappointed in Meg but still a good story
  • Beverly
    Published in 1970, and now re-released with new artwork by Hope Larson. Interesting story, but not quite as good as Wrinkle.
  • Gail Morris
    Good story for younger readers to introduce them to the Wrinkle in Time series.
  • Kathryn
    I enjoyed revisiting Meg, Charles Wallace, and Calvin; but other reviews are right - this reads like a short story that was later expanded into Wind in the Door .
  • Simonew
    Very amusing, very short...totally entertaining.
  • Doni
    This is really just an extraction from A Wind In the Door.
  • Ralph Bowman
    Once again it's Meg's love that saves the day...A very lovely follow up to A Wrinkle in Time. I enjoyed the books when I was young and still do!
  • Marie Valenzuela
    The story takes place shortly after "A Wrinkle in Time," and is the basis for "A Wind in the Door." As a stand alone story, it lacks context for readers unfamiliar with "Wrinkle," and is somewhat disconcerting for those who have read "Wind." Nonetheless, it is well-written, and the illustrations add a lot to the story. Although it is unlikely that I would re-read it on my own, I look forward to reading it aloud with a child should the opportunity...
  • Kim
    it's like a draft of the second book of the quartet and the characters aren't quite themselves.
  • Ms. Yingling
    Public library copyI can see this illustrated chapter book being bought by a lot of elementary schools who want to introduce readers to the characters they have met in The Wrinkle in Time movie, but this did not work for me. Why? I have an intense hatred of Charles Wallace that I had forgotten! I adored Meg, I owned a paperback copy of the original book for years and years, but I never liked Charles Wallace and his little pajama'd feet and his pr...
