  • Exposition
  • Rising Action
  • Climax
  • One dark and dreary night, Margaret Murry lay awake in her attic bedroom. She tried not to think about her father who had been missing for years. She crept to the door as quietly as possible and tiptoed downstairs to find Charles Wallace, her little brother, waiting for her. A minute or two later, Fortinbras, their big black dog, started making a fuss. Her mother went to check it out, and came back with a woman. "Mrs. Whatsit!", Charles exclaimed.  After giving Mrs. Whatsit something to eat, and talking, she said "there is a such thing as a Tesseract", and abruptly left the house.
  • Falling Action
  • Meg was sore. What happened? She opened her eyes to rolling hills, huge mountains, and as she looked around, she saw Mrs. Who, Mrs. Whatsit, and Mrs. Which with Calvin and Charles. Apparently they had tessered. Mrs. Whatsit suddenly transformed into a  creature that seemed to be half man, half Pegasus, and bent its head down to let them climb onto its back. They flew higher and higher, and as they finally slowed, Mrs. Whatsit told them to look off into the sky, where they saw an evil looking black splotch that blocked out the stars.
  • Resolution
  • Suddenly, a great  push commenced, and then black. As Meg finally awoke, she looked around, and realized that they were on a dull grey planet. They walked into a cave, and next to a fire sat a woman in mauve robes, holding a crystal ball.  Then right there before their eyes, a picture of Earth came into the ball, and the Earth was surrounded by evil darkness. They tessered again, this time onto a hill over a neighborhood, but something was wrong with this town.
  • The End!
  • As they traveled down the road to  the town, they realized that everyone was moving simultaneously. The longer they explored Camazotz, they knew that evil was at work. They found Meg's father trapped, and he said that he had been stranded on a dark planet ever since an experiment went wrong. The dark and evil force IT was after them though and before they knew it, all of their lives were on the line. They had saved Mr. Murry, but now they had to save Charles.
  • Suddenly a push, and they were back at Meg's house. Finally, their journey was coming to a close. The journey that had made them face the dark and powerful IT. They had saved Meg's father and Charles Wallace. Meg, Calvin, Charles, and Mr. Murry all reunited with Meg's mom and Fortinbras, who were both beside themselves.  It seemed that all was well, in the end....
