Have you ever wanted to be a part of your favorite book? To jump into its pages and see the world with your own two eyes? Join Meggie and her friends as they dive into the magical story, Inkheart.

Meggie’s Gift

Meggie’s father Mo is a silvertongue—he can bring characters to life by reading books aloud. But he’s not the only one. Meggie also has the gift. And she uses it to transport herself and her friend Farid into a book called Inkheart. They enter the Inkworld on a mission: to find Dustfinger who had returned to his home in Inkheart a short time ago.

The Inkworld

Meggie is fascinated by the magical Inkworld. There are blue-skinned fairies, moss women and trees stretching higher than the clouds; there are glass men, fire-dancers and the beautiful Ombra castle. But evil also lurks in the Inkworld—a wicked man called the Adderhead.


The Revenge

One year ago, Mo killed the villainous Capricorn. Now Capricorn’s mother, Mortola, and sidekick, Basta, want revenge. They hire Orpheus, another silvertongue, to send themselves, Mo and his wife Resa into the Inkworld. When they arrive, Mortola shoots Mo and leaves him to die. But Mo fights to stay alive, ignoring the ghostly White Women who try to lure him into death.


The Bluejay

Fenoglio, the author of Inkheart, now lives in the Inkworld. He makes a living by writing poems and songs for the town folk. One of his poems stars a thief named the Bluejay, a character with the same face, hair and even the same scar as Mo. But now that Mo is in the Inkworld, rumors are spreading that the Bluejay is real. And the evil Adderhead will stop at nothing to capture Mo and his gifted daughter. But will Meggie and Mo escape, or will they suffer a brutal death like the rest of the Adderhead’s victims?


The Bottom Line

Everything that made Inkheart a brilliant story is doubled in its sequel. Inkspell is more magical, adventurous and suspenseful than the first book, and even the villains are more terrifying. Those who liked Inkheart will love Inkspell.

    • Totally, they live in gardens and tie your shoelaces when you aren't looking.
    • No way, they're nonsense.
    • Just in stories and movies.

I Just looked it up and Here is what i found....: At the dawn of agriculture, about 8000 B.C., the population of the world was approximately 5 million. Over the 8,000-year period up to 1 A.D. it grew to 200 million (some estimate 300 million or even 600, suggesting how imprecise population estimates of early historical periods can be), with a growth rate of under 0.05% per year. A tremendous change occurred with the industrial revolution: whereas  it had taken all of human history until around 1800 for world population to reach one billion , the second billion was achieved in only 130 years (1930), the third billion in less than 30 years (1959), the fourth billion in 15 years (1974), and the fifth billion in only 13 years (1987). During the 20th century alone, the population in the world has grown from 1.65 billion to 6 billion. In 1970, there were roughly half as many people in the world as there are now. Because of declining  growth rates , it will now take over 200 years to double again. So, There are definitely more people on earth now...huh?
