Here it is the 15th, so that means announcing the second book in the Madeleine L'Engle Read-Along. I hope that there are still people reading it! I actually have all ready, so I will be posting a review of it soon. I hardly remembered the book at all, so it was almost like reading it for the very first time. I think it is my least favourite in the series, but I have to read the rest before saying for sure anymore.
It is November. 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.Leave links to reviews in the comments and feel free to use the comments as a discussion area.
