SynopsisInkheart Trilogy (slipcase) by Cornelia Funke
A special hardback compilation of the best-selling, critically acclaimed Inkheart, Inkspell and Inkdeath to coincide with the movie release. Three parts of the same tale. A story within a story, where the imaginary becomes real. In Inkheart, twelve-year-old Meggie discovers an extraordinary secret. When her father, Mo, reads aloud from books, they can quite literally come alive. Characters jump out from between the pages and people in the real world are charmed inside. So begins their adventures in the Inkworld. Their story weaves a magical path through love, loss and courage, ending, as it must, in Inkdeath, the final part of this critically acclaimed, best-selling series.
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.'
