I finished reading a long book called Inkheart last week. It was written by Cornelia Funke

It’s about a girl named Meggie who lives with her father, Mo. One night, a man named Dustfinger shows up at their door and talks to Mo. Dustfinger keeps calling him Silvertongue. Mo tells Meggie that they are going to go away awhile to her aunt’s house.

Mo and Meggie have lots of books in their house, but not as many as her aunt, Elinor, has! Meggie keeps hearing about a book called Inkheart and an evil ruler named Capricorn wanting to take it. The book is called Inkheart because Capricorn has a heart as black as ink.

One day, some men come and take her father away, and Meggie knows she has to save him!

What she doesn’t know is that her father has a special gift. When he reads aloud stuff comes out of the book, and something goes in to take its place.

I got this book at my book fair because my mom wanted to read it.  After she finished reading it she said I had to read it next because it was so good!

There’s actually a movie out based on Inkheart. We haven’t seen the movie, but we plan to!

There are two more books in this series, called Inkspell and Inkdeath. I haven’t read them yet.

Inkheart is such a great book and I’m glad I read it!

One Response to “Inkheart”

    It seems that the series being written by authors like Cornelia Funke and Cassandra Clare were inspired by J.K. Rowling’s incredible success with the Harry Potter series. These aren’t the first series ever, of course—there’s a long tradition. But these modern series are nice to have, especially because they’re encouraging more and more people, particularly young people, to develop a love of reading. That’s great because reading can be a lifetime of joy.
