This is the book that we are currently reading with the kids. Well, it's actually 4 books (I guess that's why it's a QUARTET?)
The first book is A Wrinkle in Time (1962) (newbery medal winner)
The second is A Wind in the Door (1973)
Third is A Swiftly Tilting Planet (1978)
and last is Many Waters (1986).
all are written by Madeleine l"Engle (1918-2007)
Here is the first sentence of the first book...
On a dark, stormy night a strange visitor, Mrs. Whatsit, shows up at the Murry house and mentions that there is such as thing as a tesseract.
