Inkheart is a fun, lighthearted YA fantasy by Cornelia Funke. The story is about a girl named Meggie and her father. Her father, a book conservationist, has a magnificent yet dangerous talent: anything he reads comes to life! Many years ago, this led to the villains of one novel capturing Meggie’s mother, and imprisoning her within their story. So creative! I love Funke’s mind. When Meggie comes of age, she, her father, and her great-aunt set out to rescue Meggie’s mother from the book. A very original idea and one that worked well on paper and film!
