( Rating: 5 Star Rating)

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.


Inkheart Rating: 5

The Muslims who would be banned would not be in our country, and thus our Constitution would not apply to them. Essentially, it would prohibit the exercise of their religion about as much as it would prohibit the exercise of any other non-American. Now, if we were to deport Muslims simply for being Muslim, then that would violate their right to free exercise.

Maybe both Trump and West have egos bigger than their mansions, but at least Donald knows what he's doing. Kanye's just a bonehead.

    His wholesale campaign is a joke. Is it really not that obvious? I don't even think he is qualified to be president. I think it's just a distraction.

    Let's get Trumping. "rainbowpoptart" wrote: This is the biggest, of the few, problems I have with Trump's thoughts. Illegal immigrants know they're breaking the law by coming into the country without following our policies; they don't just walk over the border like "Hey I'm in the USA now", they come from underground tunnels. The wall isn't going to do anything expect make Mexico's economy even worse, which is going to make more Mexicans not want to live there anymore, thus meaning more are going to want to come into the U.S, then there are going to be even more illegal immigrants. It isn't going to solve the problem, it's going to add to it.   Underground tunneling? Tunnels are used for high profile items or individuals.
