Road Trip Book #11: Inkheart
There's something so perfect about listening to a story about the power and magic of reading aloud, especially when the reader is the celebrated late actress Lynn Redgrave. In Cornelia Funke's international bestseller, "silvertongues" can bring characters and creatures out of books just by reciting the prose. Sometimes these literary refugees are miserable in our world, sometimes they're thrilled—mostly the villains, and Funke excels at those. We also love the sequel Inkworld though the reader, Brendan Fraser, who starred in the movie version of the book, isn't nearly as good. But as with Harry Potter, we don't recommend the last book, Inkdeath, to readers under 11, as it's all about, you guessed it, death.
