Summary
A New York Times BestsellerNot a day goes by that Meggie doesn't think about Inkheart, the book whose characters came to life - and changed her life forever. But for Dustfinger, the fire-eater brought into being from words, the need to return to the original tale has become desperate. Leaving behind his apprentice, Farid, Dustfinger plunges into the medieval inkspace once more. Farid goes in search of Meggie, and before long, both are caught inside the book, too, where they meet the book's author, Fenoglio, now living within his own story. But the tale is much changed. Will Meggie, Farid, and Fenoglio manage to write the wrongs of a charmed World?Simultaneous Publication with Scholastic Kids' Standard Print edition.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Gr. 6-9. Readers who enjoyed Funke's Inkheart (2003) are in for a treat with this sequel, a stronger book than its predecessor. In the first volume of the trilogy, a few characters have the ability to read a character out of a book and into today's world. In this book the process is reversed, and most of the earlier characters are transported to the magical yet perilous and sometimes brutally violent land of the fictional book, also called Inkheart. Young Meggie has longed to visit that world, but once she travels there she realizes the consequences of her choice and the seeming impossibility of putting things right in either place. With the help of Fenoglio, the book's author, who now lives in the secondary world, she connives to turn events toward a good outcome. Though some readers will simply enjoy the adventure story, others will be intrigued by Fenoglio's reflections on the impossibility of controlling what he has created. As before, the book's focus shifts from one group of characters to another as the plot moves swiftly. An indispensable key to the numerous characters precedes the story. Readers will enjoy the many quotes at chapter headings from writers as diverse as Margaret Atwood, David Almond, Kate DiCamillo, Harper Lee, Pablo Neruda, Philip Pullman, J. K Rowling, and T. H. White. In short, a booklover's book. --Carolyn Phelan Copyright 2005 Booklist"
