Review: Inkheart by Cornelia Funke

Inkheart by Cornelia Funke (Hardcover)
Hardcover: 535 pages
Publisher: Chicken House/Scholastic; 1st Us Edition edition (2003)
ISBN-10: 0439852706
ISBN-13: 978-0439852708

My thoughts:
I loved this book! It is  full of adventure and i love it. I loved Meggie because she's willing to sacrifice her life for her friends and family.  There were some scary moments, but it wasn't that scary.  Just lots of adventure and mystery.
Read the rest to but in the correct order. 



Four Crowns



Meggie's father Mo has an interesting talent: when he reads aloud, things, and sometimes people, come out of their stories and into the real world! But now the evil Capricorn wants to use Mo's talents to bring himself great wealth and power. Then Meggie discovers that maybe Mo isn't the only one who can read things to life. This is an enchanting story full of adventure, suspense, and magic. The characters are vivid and delightful. Unlike many books for younger readers there is a distinct emphasis on the importance of family as seen in the close relationship between Meggie and her father. Unfortunately the author does include several instances of mild profanity which seems totally unnecessary in a children's book and is perhaps the biggest detractor from the story. Lightly magical, humorous, and fun, Inkheart will appeal to those who like adventure and fantasy, and to anyone who ever wished a story could come to life.

Great review, Reagan!! I want to get the series and read them. I love how you get so involved with the characters in your books. I'm looking forward to watching a vlog from you too. You do such a great job painting a picture of the book with your words.
