Imagine you could bring the characters from your favorite books to life? Well, Meggie’s father Mo can, but his gift comes at a terrible price. Join Meggie, Mo and the rest of the book-loving gang in Cornelia Funke’s magical story, Inkheart.

Author: Cornelia Funke

Twelve-year-old Meggie loves books more than anything in the world. And so does her father Mo, a bookbinder, who keeps stacks of books all over the house like wobbly pieces of art. They live a quiet life, surrounded by stories and fairy tales. Until one day, a mysterious stranger with a scarred face arrives in the dead of the night.


The Mysterious Stranger

He calls himself Dustfinger, and for some strange reason he refers to Mo as Silvertongue. Curious, Meggie listens to their hushed conversations and discovers the terrifying reason for the man’s visit. She also discovers the reason for her mother’s mysterious disappearance nine years ago.


Mo’s Gift

When Meggie was three, Mo read aloud from a book called Inkheart. And suddenly, before his eyes, three characters emerged from its pages: Dustfinger, the scar-faced stranger; Capricorn, the story’s villain; and Basta, Capricorn’s knife-happy sidekick. And if that wasn’t bad enough, Meggie’s mother and their two cats vanished into the book.


Dustfinger’s Warning

Dustfinger gives Mo a warning: Capricorn is after him and the last copy of Inkheart. He wants Mo to release the evil Shadow out of Inkheart’s pages. Unfortunately, Mo has no control over which characters come out of the book. But Capricorn doesn’t believe him. So Mo and Meggie are forced to leave home, but will they escape or did Dustfinger’s warning come too late?


The Bottom Line

Inkheart is magical, adventurous and perfect for any book addict. It’s written like a modern fairy tale and is sure to become a classic.
