Overview

When Meg comes home from school, Charles Wallace tells her he saw dragons in the twin's vegetable garden. That night Meg, Calvin and C.W. go to the vegetable garden to meet the Teacher (Blajeny) who explains that what they are seeing isn't a dragon at all, but a cherubim named Proginoskes. It turns out that C.W. is ill and that Blajeny and Proginoskes are there to make him well – by making him well, they will keep the balance of the universe in check and save it from the evil Echthros. Meg, Calvin and Mr. Jenkins (grade school principal) must travel inside C.W. to have this battle and save Charles' life as well as the balance of the universe. Meg Murry no puede evitar sentirse un poco preocupada cuando su pequeño hermano de seis años de edad anuncia, sin reparo ni preocupación, que ha visto dragones en el jardín de la casa. Por supuesto que Charles Wallace ha sido siempre un poco diferente —extraño incluso—, aunque también brillante, pero Meg sabe muy bien que él sufre de una enigmática y terrible enfermedad, y esos «dragones» que ha visto en el jardín no pueden ser sino una monstruosa entidad que ayudará a su hermano a luchar contra el mal que lo aqueja. Meg, Charles y Calvin deberán librar esa batalla a lo largo y ancho del espacio exterior.

Reviews

"Complex concepts of space and time are handled well for young readers, and the author creates a suspenseful, life-and-death drama that is believably of cosmic significance. Complex and rich in mystical religious insights, this is breathtaking entertainment." ?Starred review, School Library Journal, on the English-language edition
