The Lovereading4Kids 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.

Synopsis

Inkheart Movie Edition by Cornelia Funke

From the makers of The Lord of the Rings and The Golden Compass comes Inkheart, a major new movie based on the bestselling novel by Cornelia Funke.

Meggie loves books. So does her father, Mo, a bookbinder, although he has never read aloud to her since her mother mysteriously disappeared. They live quietly until the night a stranger knocks at their door.

He has come with a warning that forces Mo to reveal an extraordinary secret – a storytelling secret that will change their lives forever.

Reviews

About the Author

Cornelia Funke

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, quickly establishing a reputation as one of Germany’s best-loved children’s authors.

Her international breakthrough 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 movie, starring Brendan Fraser, Helen Mirren and Paul Bettany, was released in 2008.

Reckless marked the start of Funke’s exciting new Mirrorworld series, and was followed by Fearless.

Cornelia Funke now lives in California and is working on several new books.
