Twelve-year-old Meggie learns that her father, who repairs and binds books for a living, can "read" fictional characters to life when one of those characters abducts them and tries to force him into service.

Characters from books literally leap off the page in this engrossing fantasy. Meggie has had her father to herself since her mother went away when she was young. Mo taught her to read when she was five, and the two share a mutual love of books. He can "read" characters out of books. When she was three, he read aloud from a book called Inkheart and released characters into the real world. At the same time, Meggie's mother disappeared into the story. This "story within a story" will delight not just fantasy fans, but all readers who like an exciting plot with larger-than-life characters.

I am a seventh grade English Language Arts teacher. I teach in area where the crime and poverty rate are among the highest in Pennsylvania. We are in desperate need of books for our classroom library. It is my hope that each student will be able to borrow books from my classroom to take home with them to read.

My students are from an area where the poverty and crime rates are among highest in the state. I teach three English Language Arts classes, therefore there are a wide range of abilities within my classroom. My students are absolutely amazing. I am hoping to get some of the books they have personally requested to feed their thirst for reading.
