Yet To Read: Inkheart, By Cornelia Funke

Yet to read: Is about a book that i haven't read before, but i want to. And most plot descriptions are from Amazon.

Title: Inkheart
Author: Cornelia Funke
Pages: 560

Plot: "Meggie, 12, has had her father, Mo, to herself since her mother went away when she was young. He taught her to read when she was five, and the two share a mutual love of books. Mo has a wonderful and sometimes terrible ability. When he reads aloud from books, he brings the characters to life- literally. Mo discovered his powers when Meggie was just a baby. He read so lyrically from the book Inkheart, that several of the books wicked characters ended up blinking and cursing on his cottage floor. Meggie, now a young lady, knows nothing of her father's bizarre and powerful talent, only that Mo still refuses to read to her. But Capricorn, a being so evil he would "feed a bird to a cat on purpose, just to watch it being torn apart," has searched for Meggie's father for years, wanting to twist Mo's powerful talent to his own dark means. Finally, Capricorn realizes that the best way to lure Mo to his remote mountain hideaway is to use his beloved, oblivious daughter as bait!"
