In this MF book, Meggie lives with her father Mo, who repairs books. Meggie and her father have the gift of bringing characters from books to their world by reading the books. One night, Mo accidentally reads an evil ruler from the pages of the book Inkheart and now Meggie and her dad must use their gift to send him back to his own world. #ucflae3414su19

Bwhitley222 This book would be best read as an LC. Discussion questions that can be used and other materials can be found here: https://www.varsitytutors.com/englishteacher/funke

A UDL appropriate for this book is 6.1: guide appropriate goal setting. This book is large and students should set reading goals.

EL 6. Continually monitor student's comprehension would be ideal for this book because it is large and has complex ideas.

4/5⭐ I think it was a little too long, but overall I enjoyed this book-centered story. The characters felt unique and real. Elinor was especially entertaining.

LibrarianRyan I agree with the too long. All that wandering inverted the hills. Ughh. But great book. 6mo
hissingpotatoes @LibrarianRyan Yeah and I'm worried starting book 2 that it's even longer... 6mo

So it's happened, I kept thinking, you're in the middle of a story exactly as you‘ve always wanted, and it's horrible. Fear tastes quite different when you're not just reading about it, Meggie, and playing hero wasn't half as much fun as I'd expected.

Why do grown-ups think it's easier for children to bear secrets than the truth? Don't they know about the horror stories we imagine to explain the secrets?

I'm a fan of ya, but although this is technically middle grade...it is very well written! If you love anything about books, you'll love this book. I think what I like the most is you can relate to each of the characters and mostly what you always dreamed of from books...come to life in this book. It definitely kept me on my toes and it is a trilogy.

Janeeny @LibrarianRyan yeah, I loved the concept but it also felt a bit rushed at the end. Although that could be because the last 25 pages in my edition were actually notes about the author and the first chapter of Inkspell, so it ended a bit sooner than I expected 6mo
LibrarianRyan @Janeeny Hummm. I cant remember. I just remember that the walking in the middle over the hills was so boring. And I was trying to convince kids to stick with it. I am looking forward to her new book. We haven't had new Funke that wast early chapter in a while. 6mo

“Inkheart” is a modern fantasy (F) novel written by Cornelia Funke. This is the story of a young girl named Maggie who, along with her father, has the ability to bring storybook characters to life. Everything goes awry when one of the characters they‘ve summoned refuses to leave. This would be a good literature circle book (LC). #LAE3414sp19

wmaxflowers Lesson plan:

This less plan would align well with UDL principle 5.1 and ESOL 48.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

52 week reading challenge: A children‘s novel (6)

Inkheart is a magical story that brings the mystery and wonder of books to life. It made me laugh, cry, worry, and hope. I felt the text was captivating, adventurous, and heartwarming. This is a well-written children‘s novel with rich, descriptive vocabulary, profound ideas, intoxicating charm, and a heroic crusade.

I slowed down a bit because of being sick (sometimes it's easier to zone out to rewatching NCIS on Netflix), but I really am enjoying this book, and I especially love the quotes at the beginning of each chapter. I'm happy that I already own the sequel, and I ordered the final book in the trilogy this evening. 😁

“He might tell me how my story ends,” he murmured.

Meggie looked at him in astonishment. “You mean you don‘t know?”

Dustfinger smiled. Meggie still didn‘t particularly like his smile. It seemed to appear only to hide something else. “What‘s so unusual about that, princess?” he asked quietly. “Do you know how your story ends?”

This is definitely one that I need to reread because I still need to read the other books 😂

I read this many many years ago, but it was a wonderful fantasy about a bookbinder named Mo who can read characters to life & his daughter & the villain who wants to use Mo's talents for evil.

#backpackeurope travelogue *fictional*
Country 44: back to Germany, en route to the Netherlands - stopped in Hamburg (home of Cornelia Funke) to visit the city. Saw the model railway museum and their concert hall.
I started this book 15 years ago but abandoned it (I even found a Return of the King AOL-sponsored bookmark when I restarted from the beginning). It was good to finally read the whole thing - dark, but celebrates the magic of books. 4/5

This immediately sprang to mind when thinking of #bookishfathers. Other than my own father, of course, but he'd kill me if I put his photo up on social media 😂😂. In this book, Meggie's father, Mo, can actually read characters out of stories and into real life. This is the first in a trilogy. I highly enjoyed the first two (but they're pretty dark), but of course haven't finished the last.
