AWARD-WINNING BOOK CHALLENGE REVIEW
This summer I have neglected my award-winning book challenge, hosted by Gathering Books. After much writing, hosting of wonderful friends and kayaking, I picked up Inkheart, a title I knew of but had not read. If you know a middle-schooler, get this book into his/her hands!
Inkheart by Cornelia Funke
Dressler Verlag, The Chicken House and Scholastic, 2003
Awards: Phantastik-Preis der Stadt Wetzlar for children's fiction in Germany, 2004
Kalbacher Klapperschlange – German Children’s Choice Award
Silberner Griffel Award - Netherlands
Inkheart is the first title of a trilogy. Inkspell and Inkdeath follow. I have not read these titles, but Inkheart is a page turner, a flashlight-under-the-covers kind of story.
