The Lovereading4Kids comment

This is the perfect book to introduce younger siblings of Inkheart fans to the world of Inkworld prior to the movie release in January. Inkheart is an enthralling tale of loyalty, passion and betrayal, with Cornelia’s trademark wit, warmth and humanity and this is a simple retelling of the story and illustrated throughout with movie stills. A perfect taster of what’s to come.

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.
