Speaking of pre-release, why not read the book in the days leading up to the premier and then spend the day before the premier watching the original movie from 1983? These cupcakes would make the perfect addition to the movie and help get the kids excited for the release!

If you’re interested, A Wrinkle in Time is part of the A Wrinkle in Time Quintet series. The books following A Wrinkle in Time include A Wind in the Door, A Swiftly Tilting Planet, Many Waters, and An Acceptable Time.
