about this item
This dazzling, gripping sequel to the bestselling children's fantasy INKHEART follows curious, adventurous Meggie--the 12-year-old daughter of renowned bookbinder Mo--and beautiful, silent Resa, into a dangerous, compelling world trapped between the pages of Inkheart. Though the family has been reunited and living happily at Aunt Elinor's, Meggie's unquenchable thirst for stories about Inkheart causes her to read herself into the book, along with Farid, a boy seeking to rejoin the fire-eater, Dustfinger. There, they seek out Fengolio, the author, and discover that all is not as they expected. The voice of actor Brendan Fraser served as the inspiration for Mo, and the book is dedicated, in part, to him.
When Dustfinger, the fire-eater who was brought into being from words, finds a shady storyteller to read him back into the medieval world, Farid, Dustfinger's apprentice, searches for Meggie and ends up stuck inside the book with her.
