What's at the Movies is in your Library, "Inkheart"

Sometimes the book is better than the movie. Join us as we discover the books behind some of Hollywood’s biggest blockbusters…new and old. All of the books featured here can be found at your local Little Dixie Regional Library!

Book: “Inkheart” by Cornelia Funke (2003) 
     Twelve-year-old Meggie learns that her father, who repairs and binds books for a living, can "read" fictional characters to life when one of those characters abducts them and tries to force him into service.

Movie: "Inkheart" (Released in Theaters January 23, 2009) Starring Brendan Fraser, Paul Bettany and Helen Mirren, “Inkheart” tells the story of a young girl, who discovers her father has an amazing talent to bring characters out of their books and must try to stop a freed villain from destroying them all, with the help of her father, her aunt, and a storybook's hero.
