The Lovereading comment:
Impeccably written, this is a real treasure trove of imagination, nail-biting drama and characters so cleverly drawn that you feel you know every one of them personally. Inkworld is a marvellous place of magical realism, full of adventure, passion and excitement and you’ll feel utterly compelled to read this one and its sequels Inkspell and Inkdeath.
Inkheart the movie, released on 12th December 2008, stars among others Helen Mirren, Eliza Bennett and Jim Broadbent and has been made by the makers of The Lord of the Rings and The Golden Compass.Click here to see the trailer http://www.inkheartmovie.com/
SynopsisInkheart: Inkheart 1 by Cornelia Funke
One cruel night, young Meggie's father, Mo, reads aloud from Inkheart and an evil ruler named Capricorn escapes the boundaries of fiction and lands in their living room. Suddenly, Meggie is smack in the middle of the kind of adventure she has only read about in books.
Somehow, Meggie and Mo must learn to harness the magic that conjured this nightmare. Somehow they must change the course of the story that has changed their lives forever.
This is Inkheart, a timeless tale about books, about imagination, about life.
About The Author
Cornelia Funke is the New York Times bestselling author of the INKHEART trilogy, THE THIEF LORD and a whole host of popular children's novels and picture books.
Born in 1958 in the German town of Dorsten, Cornelia initially worked as an illustrator but soon began writing her own stories. She quickly established her reputation as one of Germany's best loved children's authors with her series Gespensterjäger (Ghosthunters) and the Wilden Hühner (the first two books of which series are published in the UK as C.H.I.X. THE SUMMER GANG and C.H.I.X. THE NEW GIRL).
Her international break-through came with the fantasy novel DRAGON RIDER, which spent 78 weeks on the New York Times bestseller list. Success continued with the publication of THE THIEF LORD, which immediately climbed to the #2 spot on the New York Times bestseller list and stayed there for 19 weeks, selling 1.5 million copies.
INKHEART, the first book in the INKHEART trilogy, followed, winning the 2004 BookSense Book of the Year Children's Literature Award. INKSPELL continued the trilogy's success, winning a second BookSense Book of the Year Children's Literature Award in 2006. The trilogy concluded with INKDEATH, in 2008. INKHEART the movie, starring Brendan Fraser, Helen Mirren and Paul Bettany, was released in the same year.
RECKLESS (first published in hardback in 2010) marked the start of Funke's exciting new Mirrorworld series, and is followed by FEARLESS this January (2013), along with a reissue of RECKLESS.
Cornelia Funke now lives in California in the USA.'
