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.
    • Maybe, I'm not sure!

    @rainbowpoptart Well, I'd have to disagree with you there my friend. Naturally the audience that buys Barbie dolls are young girls. At a young age and with multimedia today girls are highly influenced by what they see on the TV, Magazine, and you guessed it their toys. Seeing is believing and with the unreachable beauty standards you see in magazines, it's kinda hard for girls to not want to pursue to be skinner and the likes. But anyway, your right with the Barbie being independent woman that don't need a man. But I think this new line is showing that all types of girls can be independent. This new line is expanding its skin colors, giving different hip sizes and different heights and different types of hair styles. It's no longer the blond haired and blue eyed type of deal. I think this is representing that there are many different kinds of people and different kinds of shape a sizes. With the television showing perfect fictional girl characters, or models on magazines, and other places, I think that it's good that they're showing different body types.

    @urifour11  I don't disagree with that. Well, not entirely. I disagree with your Barbie comments. Pink is Barbie's everything, and making something not pink for the female Barbie dolls would be a bit.. not Barbie.  I don't like their changing of the body shapes all too much. Barbie is supposed to be an exceptionally good-looking woman who shows girls that they don't need a man to be happy with their lives (though some people may think otherwise because of Ken's existence) and that they can do literally whatever they want to. It sounds really harsh, but I think it's the individual's fault for thinking they need to look a certain way to be accepted.  Although I strongly disagree with the newer dolls, I do completely respect why they're doing it. I'm sure they're working on the Lego sets. They already have dolls, so Legos should be here any day now, haha. And @Pink_Cool_Girl I want to look into the computer thing you were talking about to continue that discussion, but I'm super busy right now (I'm multi-tasking like crazy ugh). It'll have to wait until tomorrow. :P

    @rainbowpoptart  You make a very good point. But what I think PCG is trying to say is that maybe someone should consider that some girls don't like pink? Like, I loved playing with doll houses as a kid AND toy cars. But what if someone made a black Barbie house. Like hell yeah I would buy that. Or maybe a pink you car. Wouldn't that be cool? Maybe what I'm trying to get at here is that companies could mix and match their toys together. Use different colors for different items. That would help expand their market much more.  What I'm really impressed though is what Barbie is doing at the moment with making different body types for their dolls. That's awesome right? Anyway, if a girl wants to get a toy car then she can just waltz her way to the boys section and get one. Sure it's kinda disregarding that maybe a girl would like a toy car but man, that's not stopping her from buying that sweet toy car. But what we should really be focusing on is how LEGOS did the sexist thing. WHY ISNT THERE A BATGIRL LEGO SET OR A WONDERWOMAN LEGO SET?!? THATS WHAT IM WAITING FOR AND IM 13 YEARS OLD BUT I WOULD MOST DEFINATLEY BUY ANYTHING REGUARDING WONDERWOMAN. A little off topic. Companies would make more money mixing and matching their toys. Blue toy cars for girls Barbies, a cooking grill for boys. And then there are things that are for both genders like science sets or Doctor kits. In fact I think girls play more with Doctor kits than boys tbh. What one saying is, companies could expand more.
