Inkheart ~ Cornelia Funke

Children's Literature
#1 of a trilogy

Mo, aka Silvertongue, is able to "read" people out of a book ... but someone from this world is "traded" back into the fictional world of the book. Mo has accidently "read" his wife back into a book and brought its evil characters here.

The story follows the adventures of Dustfinger, Mo and Meggie as they battle the evil Capricorn and Basta.

There are great quotes from literature at the start of each chapter. They are widely sourced and appropriate to the content.

My reading of the book may have been spoiled because I saw the movie first but Alphie got right into the series and read all of them.
