A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words: Mrs. Whatsit

Estimated Time: 15-20 minutes

The author describes Mrs. Whatsit as an "old woman" with a "sparse quantity of grayish hair... tied in a small but tidy knot on top of her head. Her eyes were bright, her nose a round, soft blob, her mouth puckered like an autumn apple." She is described as wearing an unusual assortment of clothes including several scarves, a bandana, a coat, boots and a pink stole.

In Disney's 2003 and 2018 movies of A Wrinkle in Time, Mrs. Whatsit is played by actresses Alfre Woodard and Reese Witherspoon, respectively. Do the images that Disney created for Mrs. Whatsit fit what you had imagined? Tell us or draw a picture of how you pictured Mrs. Whatsit in your mind and upload it to the comments.
