This is one of my FAVORITE books of all time.

Title: Inkheart
Author: Cornelia Funke

Summary (B& One cruel night, Meggie's father, Mo, reads aloud from INKHEART, and an evil ruler named Capricorn escapes the boundaries of fiction, landing instead in their living room. Suddenly, Meggie's in the middle of the kind of adventure she thought only took place in fairy tales. Somehow she must master the magic that has conjured up this nightmare. Can she change the course of the story that has changed her life forever?

My Review: Since Inkheart is one of my favorite books it really hard to review it….

Inkheart is basically a book about books. Mo Folchart is a book binder, he binds books and saves their lives. Not only is Mo a book lover and a book doctor, he can also read things out of books. When some characters show up in his living room one night when his daughter, Meggie is 3, his wife is accidentally read into the book. That night sets off a wild adventure full of amazingly vivid characters, some original to the novel and others that were plopped in from their own worlds….

At the beginning of each chapter there’s a quote from another book. And that may be one of my favorite things about Inkheart. It opens your eyes not just to the world of Meggie and Mo but to the world of other character’s in other books you may not have picked up other wise.

The story itself pulls me into it every time I read it (and this is the fourth time). And that, right there is the reason I love Inkheart so much!
