Funke, Cornelia. _Inkspell_Scholastic, 2005 [0-439-55400-4]
  WOW..I think this sequel to Inkheart is better than the first!  We are back with 
Meggie, her family and friends in a place where certain people who read out loud 
from a story will transfer characters from the story to this life and back and 
forth.  Now Meggie, her mother, father, Dustfinger are back within the story along 
with the original author of the story.  The author notices the story (and world 
they are in) is changing from what he has written.  He starts writing new sections 
of the story having a "reader" read it.  This unfortunately changes things not 
quite as he imagined them.  Meanwhile back on the real world, Elinor is being held 
captive in her house by some characters who have come out of the book.  It is all 
much to complicated to explain here.  All I can say is that this 635 book paints an 
incredible picture of two worlds wrapped up in a fantasy situation.  It is a 
"meaty" read which took me a long time to get through and the writing is beautiful 
 though it is translated) but don't miss this series.
