Meggie thinks her father is just a normal man - until the mysterious Dustfinger comes calling, that is. With him, Dustfinger brings stories of other worlds, strange people, and Meggie's mother. And from that night onwards, Meggie is plunged into a world of mystery, adventure and magic. Because suddenly, the written word is no longer written... but alive...
This is such a genius book. With its wonderful, inspired descriptions, Inkheart has gained a place on my Favourites Bookshelf - and that's saying something!! This truly is a must-read for all aspiring authors, even if, at first glance, it might seem a bit young for you. A great book to get lost in, and all about the power of words!
