Product description

With every word spoken, the story comes to life…

Meggie loves stories, but her father Mo refuses to read them to her. He hasn’t read a single book aloud since her mother mysteriously vanished years ago. But when a sinister stranger knocks at the door one night, Mo is forced to reveal a breathtaking secret. When he reads, words come alive… and frightening characters step out of their pages. Suddenly, Meggie is living the kind of adventure she has only read about in books, and walking into a story where peril lurks at every turn.

Full of spine-tingling drama, Cornelia Funke’s dazzling fantasy trilogy shows what great children’s fiction should be like. Never before has reading been so exciting – or so dangerous.

    Wow, these books are awesome. Certainly page-turners, and really suspenceful. Cornelia Funke is one of my favorite fantasy authors. Really great books.

    An amazing book filled with imagination and adventure, the power all readers secretly think they have, to read things to life. It seems that all of Cornelia Funke’s books are just awesome.

    The Inkheart trilogy is a really good take on reading. By the end of this action-packed series, I was almost too scared to read because I thought they might come to life! They are really detailed and fun to read.
