In this enchanting classic by Cornelia Funke, Meggie and her father Mo are visiting an old book shop. This is very normal, actually, because he is a book-binder and often repairs old books. When Mo finds a book named 'Inkheart', the two of them meet Dustfinger, a fire-breather from a world of fantasy that lies inside their new book. But, as in all books, there is never just a good side; there are also the villains. And now they are after Meggie and Mo and their magical abilities to pull things out of books when they read the book out loud. In this book, the father-daughter duo will encounter; mysterious legends, an elderly writer, that Meggie's mother didn't abandon them (instead, she was trapped inside a book for all these years), an amazing castle, the tyrant lord Capricorn, and their own strength and power.
This book is BREATH-TAKING! It is an outstanding novel that everyone should own. READ IT!
