Although Maggie dearly misses her mother, she enjoys her quiet life with her father who works as a book binder. Yet there always seemed to be so many unanswered questions about her mother’s disappearance and why her father has never read aloud to her since that happened. Soon these questions will begin to be answered when some mysterious strangers begin showing up at her house and literally make her reading come to life!

Inkheart is a unique story that any reader who enjoys exciting fantasy stories would enjoy. It’s especially great for strong readers because of its length and also references to many other books.
