Inkheart by Cornelia Funke

InkspellInkheart, the recently released film, is based on the first book of the Inkworld trilogy by Cornelia Funke. Twelve year old Meggie Folchart’s life changes dramatically when she realizes that her father, Mo, who works as a bookbinder has a rare gift. Mo can cause characters from books to live in the real world when he reads aloud. One such character, Dustfinger, comes to warn Mo that someone is searching for him and all three journey to Italy. Places and people feature strongly throughout the book as they run from the secrets of Mo’s past. A book with such colourful characters, and a brilliant story of nail-biting drama was quite rightfully destined for the big screen. Now that the film has whetted your appetite why not read all three books in the trilogy, Inkheart, Inkspell and Inkdeath.
